BETWEEN THE STARS
(4/22/15)


to live
in a bubble
floating through space
is my
dream

traveling
in some casual
Arthur C. Clarke
capsule
of causal
exception

no worries
for air

food

water

waste removal

no worries
about
extreme temperatures

radiation

neutrinos

micrometeorites

just
a science fiction
exploratory anomaly
crossing vast
distances

vast times

on a whim

I wish
to see it
all

from the black
of the predawn
universe

to the glow
of the galaxies

to the black
of final
collapse

until
the end
when it is
only me

existing
in nonexistence

alone

waiting

for the next
creation
of the cosmos

the next
incarnation
of a home

where
I shall then
be happy
to stay
