Brought Together by John Grey

so the universe expands
more and more dark matter
is filling the resultant voids

wherever we think we are,
by the time
we’re done thinking,
we’re elsewhere

there was something
called the Big Bang
that’s been pushing us away
from its dynamic moment
since the beginning of time

we’re the result of an explosion –
we’re still exploding

none of which really explains
why you and I
are seated on a veranda bench
and staring up at the stars

I never thought it would
