And there, there
lie in the explosion of intellect:
lights and sounds and colors and forms –
primordial, a soup, it was
molecules and asteroids and spaceships and pixels
colliding; all the while,
great celestial beings were birthed by
gravity – by their own merit – by
natural attraction, the powers of love and curiosity
it cost God a holy week
to complete Creation; yet
it took Adam but a sinful day
to be
the discoverer of Earth, and
it didn’t happen in that order – the way
most would like to believe
