Stardust

(from the archives)

Stardust

when there was -black-
And not even black

Just a non-existent

Existential crisis,

I knew you were there.

And when Something

Sprang out of

Nothing,

I followed you,

as far as the waves

Rippled out.

From galaxy to

galaxy,

I was an atom

in every star

where you dwelled.

Where you sped, I sped.

Where you stopped, I stopped.

And somehow, across

Billions of solar systems and

Billions of years,

your molecules settled

Lazily here,

In a place cursed with

Humanity

what chemical composition causes chaos?

what nuclear function fuels failure?

And so the world

Stretches before us,

An experiment in

Particle physics;

You, with your classic skepticism

And I, with new age mysticism,

Two factions warring

To determine the meaning

of stardust.
