Remarkably They Came

From far far away there came a wave
more precise to say five waves
remarkably the same
in time frame

They came from the center of our galaxy
from a "space object"
subjected to our space logic
digested for over two years by our scientists
then regurgitated to us
as an after burp
nicknaming
this mysterious source, not as a main course
but
"burper"

From a magnetar…not a mega……star
with a megaphone
a coming home, a cavalry charge
crossing the cosmos
a calvalry call to our skull

a pulse to give us heart
an arrow from Eros
five bursts in seven hours
constant,…contact
a quiver
from the center of the galaxy

creator…
of a brown dwarf, ummm, closer to a like source
elves maybe other selves
maybe rings to remind our selfs
to listen to our center

to reverberate a higher course
from a true source
a cavalry of consciousness to our calvary
to use our hands seven days a week
to seek

to burst the usurpers
interpretation of nomenclature
and take back our place
as a human race
with a human face
towards
the stars

US astronomers reckon they may have identified a previously unknown type of space object after recording an unusual and potent burst of radio waves from the centre of our galaxy.

Scientists have nicknamed object GCRT J1745-3009 a "burper", Reuters reports. Lead boffin Scott Hyman explained: "An image of the Galactic center, made by collecting radio waves of about 1 meter (3 feet) in wavelength, revealed multiple bursts from the source during a seven-hour period from Sept. 30 to Oct. 1, 2002 - five bursts in fact, and repeating at remarkably constant intervals."

The mystery object is estimated to lie between 300 and 24,000 light-years from Earth. Astronomers say GCRT J1745-3009 cannot be a pulsar, but could be a brown dwarf or magnetar - an "exotic star with an extremely powerful magnetic field". It was discovered following analysis of data collected by the National Science Foundation's Very Large Array radio telescope in New Mexico.
