The light you see

You think hibernation sets you free
But the universe inexorably, ineffably amplifies
Pushing you inward and outward
Cryogenically frozen, a two dimensional photograph
An expression you can’t remember, less duplicate
A stranger in a strange body
10 years older before you surface from the dream of your reluctant odyssey
Destination, events, and horizons

Eyes sealed through the porthole of a hermetically sealed capsule
The light you see is a dying star
