Himiko Him-I-ko
Early universe object oh
Your birth 800 million years ago
Old light transmitting
Named for an ancient shaman Queen
Which seems so fitting.

Broad primordial, matronly girth
Squatting midwife at galaxy birth
12.9 billion light years from earth
Old cloud queen glowing
Oh ancient wind from a stellar field
Your suns are teething

Heave your bulk
Release old gas,
Seat your great hulk down at last
Stir the hole, brew the black
Then lie beneath your
Cosmic thatch.
