I Live Like Light Years Do

I live like light years do,
arriving too late on the scene
to be of use as I am

but then somehow a remnant
remains, a beam of an extinct sun,
a radiant one

and something shifts in the columns
that aren't upheld.
and the children sigh how is it possible

and then go back to their play
