Was nothing
 1
out of non-existence
 2
there came silence
 3
and all the noise in the universe;
 4
light expanding faster than itself
 5
making time and space
 6
for itself to be itself
 7
the cosmos being the cosmos;
 8
celestial size puffing out mass:
 9
a candle standard
 10
for imagining infinity
 11
against some intangible nature;
 12
a hyper-heart;
 13
a data-bird
 14
of catastrophe and beauty;
 15
chemical mush; cosmic stew;
 16
cannibal gravitational anomalies
 17
swallowing nuclear furnaces whole
 18
and spitting out their radioactive guts:
 19
a graven image of sinister love like
 20
novels smeared in history
 21
of love of hate of life of laughter
 22
divorced from reality where
 23
in late, lonely hours,
 24
we all lie awake waiting
 25
to be stretched from the past to the future
 26
where time isn't happening
 27
anymore than loss or sickness
 28
or those mass lunatic villains
 29
sucking, sucking
 30
sucking.
