An Ode to Careful Eyes and Cosmic Collision


Magnetotactic aligned as it must.
Organic forms in geometric directions.
Follow paths you might never see, could never feel.
Leaving behind crystalline corpses
to be seen by careful eyes.
Lines laid out by rotation,
iron and nickel spinning
deep, deep  below.

Did you know the death of stars births the heaviest elements?
Only twinned collision can build our precious gold.

We have waves and seasons,
long, calm cycles and reasons,
only because of collision.
Even mother moon was birthed in violence.

Smile when she shines.

Distortions in space-time by the presence of weighty volumes.
Creation and impact become one in the same.
Hurling winds, static, and light, and potential towards us.

Life is a byproduct of stars and stubborn chemical reactions,
refusal and collision keep us living.
