and does it know what it’s doing?
Are the forces we measure
its brainwaves, its heart beat?
Is expansion a breath?
Are black holes cancer?
And are we a part of it
or do we just look at it?
Can we use our computers to help it to learn what it is?And why does all poetry require the parts
we say we would like to get rid ofall that death stuff?
Did the universe wake up one day
bigger than its own that could not be gainsaidthat told it there was no other way
they will have to have the power to killand they will have to die
and they will have to loveand lose everything they love
if they are ever to have anythingif they are ever to know anything
if they are ever to be at all?
