Skyey Development by John Updike

The clouds within the Milky Way
May well be dismonds, proudly say
Astronomers at U. of C.
The atmospheres of two or there
"Cool stars" could concentrate and freeze
More ice than winks at Tiffany's.
The pulsars, lately found to beep
Six times or so a see, still keep
Themselves invisible, but are,
Perhaps, a kind of neutron star
So dense a cubic inch would tip
The scales against a battleship.
