Today I read Hawking:
one more wannabe -
bound for broken,
bound for the ultimate
to the lightless,
Today I read black holes,
quantum gobbledy-nonsense -
the vast unknowable panoply
of the far-off,
Today, I had a "me" attack
looking down at this
patch of flesh and bone,
these fingers that tap-tap-tap these keys
above these knobbled, nerve-dance knees)
and thought of Hawking,
looking off into the infinite,
and seeing nothing
but an absent-minded God.
