I

Shock wave - compression, condensation
Asymmetric magnetism - emergent protostar
Protostar contracion cause thermonuclear reaction
Chandrasekhar limit, HR, main sequence star

Main sequence for a billion years
Hydrogen depletion - contraction begins
Compression overcomes - expansion (to) commence
Turn off point - main sequence is left

Constrant luminosity hides hydrogen expansion
A billion years pass until (the) helium flash
Triple-Alpha-Process causes shrinkage in size
(A) Planetary Nebula is discharged - and dies

Nucleosythesis - shock wave charges (the) surface
Uncontainable - Supernova bursts forth
Most (of) its mass is lost - Stellar Pentecost
White Dwarf dies - Neutron star survives
Or a Blackened Hole?

III

Refrain from illusion of a world eternal
And on that last perfect day...
To fall and be forgotten...
(The) Lord of Worlds is exhaused
An absolution by fire begins

Elements of life consumed
Collapse recommences
(The) Volatile ash rends the core
A grotesque Phoenix distending...

Ever nearer...

Affirmation, An Ending in Fire
Atmosphere and oceans boiling: diffusion to space
Final ebb of life, to all tenements of clay
Provincial Earth and inferious immersed
The wellspring's reclamation by nuclear fire
The remnant of the paroxysm
A cenotaph of what has been
The doleful reminder - An Ending in Fire
