With humble apologies to NASA, I have adapted and augmented the text of the Astronomy Picture Of The Day to read not as a celebration of the “fascinating universe” but as a fearful poem at the dawn of a Trumpian era as it threatens destruction on a cosmic scale:

 See the complex adrift,
in dark constellations
amid the gathering gas.
A floating cluster fuck
into a void.
Light years away from reality,
savage dust clouds mask
the true distance we have fallen
