by Aidan Zingler (fractal also by me)
Scattered enriched guts splattered across the skies,
Bubbling froth, seething energy permeating space-time
Wisp of a second, our existence overlooked
by the brilliant magnitude of a 13.7 billion year old.
Intrepid explorers, we stumble into the black vastness
of a giant, violent ocean — star-birthing hurricanes,
with the strength to tear us out of existence,
yet we swim on, tumbling, thriving, and hoping.
