Someone Has Taken a Bite Out of the Sun

Someone has taken a bite out of the sun
but we cannot look to be sure

We must remain uncertain of the sun’s status
as we do clever things with binoculars and pieces of cardboard

What if the sun’s wound is never healed
and we are stuck forever with a sun with a bite taken out of it?

What if whatever took the bite out of the sun in the first place
thinks Earth will make a tasty dessert?

You tell me the sun really hasn’t had a bite taken out of it
but has just popped behind the moon for a bit

I say you are just not paying attention
and will be the first victim of the sun-eating monster

I wonder what it would be like to take a bite out of the sun
and not care at all what everyone thought of that
