Poetry Magnum Opus

quantum ghosts paint the train destined

For a single point.Dying stars miss their
Appointment with infinity.requiem in
Gravitys cathedral.The imperceptible call
Of the darkness of space for comprehensions caress.Cauterize the
Arm of a deity to colonize his vision
To drown his chisel as he explores the
Drafts of new worlds.

I'm not sure I get the last part, I'll have to let this marinate.  I'll be back.

The title is extremely provocative; I love it. Taken together with the poem it evokes origins, from that of the author to beyond, to elsewhere, then onwards to an otherworldy realm.

The diction and choice of words - quantum, dying stars, and space - brings to me thoughts about astronomy, structure of things, the burning gas of stars, the lack of apparent stability of things. I found the term 'cauterize' and was able to link it with the burning stars. 
Then, the poem switched from that complex entanglement of space to the challenge of writing a poem, as complex as astrospace.
