The Smith Cloud is the
Milky Way Galaxy’s fart –
Coming back to it –
For an unpleasant whiff in
Thirty million years’ time

Notes to this poem…
I had written about it in my main blog here.
The T-series poems are tanka composed while I was not engaged in some activity during which I frequently composed poetry. That is why these are called the Inactive Tanka collection.
