Ether and Ore

Dedicated to my grandmother, Tilly Mendez, who instilled in me a love of science fiction.

In “The Last Jedi” she did see
herself stretched to infinity
and turning, seeking answers, found,
in her dismay she was to drown.
Disappointment turned into fright.
Her parents were nowhere in sight.
On herself only must depend
through space and time without an end.

She wanted him. He wanted her
to colonize into his dream.
She wanted him to come away
from the darknesses’ demonings.

Admiral Holdo does divide
the darkness from the winning side
and drives with light to wedge between
defending her rebellious Queen.

Just then the sabor split in half.
Balance resumed to blow the mast.
Our heroine did exit quick.
On her his dreams he failed to stick.
For she does know the hidden gem
found inside her heart’s diadem:
To her own self she must be true
or suffer the rebuke of two.

Luke Skywalker bestows his gift
then disappears into the mist
to Yoda and all masters past.
He sits among the Saints at last.
