THE FINAL FRONTIER
(11/24/10)


a few
minutes ago
I was staring
at a blank
screen

thinking

hoping

wondering
what
the hell

then
I drifted
back
to my past
fascination
with math
and science
to reconsider
the emptiness
in front
of me

sub-atomically
we are only
space
defined
by a few
infinitesimal
specks of energy=matter
that create
this shell
of existence

cosmically
the bigger
picture
shows us
bits of rock
and globs
of gases
separated
by billions
of miles
of open
blackness

actually
emptiness
is the standard

the interloping
stars
planets
protons
electrons
people
and their thoughts
are the actual
aberrations

if I
were truly
trying to reflect
my place
in universe
a blank
screen
would probably
be
the best
and most honest
representation

now
I've fucked
that
up
