“If you're losing your soul and you know it, then you've still got a soul left to lose”
― Charles Bukowski


vastly unadorned, the universe
expands

with light years between billions
of stars

Can you imagine the distance?

where nothingness
grows

and becomes greater and greater while the stars,
mostly empty space,
as well -

they die out

and their black holes eat up the
rest of what's out
there

Don't you feel so alone?

by the time you could reach the next
galaxy,

the dinosaurs are
extinct

the earth has flooded

a savior has been born and
died

and your grandchildren's
grandchildren
are mere statistics in someone's history textbook

who perished long ago in the
Armageddon
