A Galactic Starburst In The Shape Of A Bullet

1.

I am a thin sliver of doubt

floating upon a sea of devastating tranquility.

Yet I dream with the velocity

of exploding stars.

2.

As planet Earth rotates at 1,000 miles per hour,

my mind twirls with dream-time possibilities;

like a ball on a string we simultaneously zoom

around a lemony sun at 66,000 miles per hour.

3.

Even when I try to cease these clock-tick movements

the chemistry of life churns onward as heartbeat by heartbeat

my body rifles through space-time.

In the massive serenity of the moment

I sense the glacial churn of the Milky Way;

though our spiral arm spins at 483,000 miles per hour,

it still feels like swimming in molasses.

4.

As I sink deeper into this cosmic mirror-land

I hear the faint rattle of a snake’s tail

as my perspective morphs again.

 

Relative to the Cosmic Background Radiation,

the Milky Way barrels through space-time

at 1.3 million miles per hour.

5.

As my essence bathes in the faint

universal whispers of the big bang

I taste millimeter-sized wavelengths

bursting with the flavor of human epiphany,

for I suddenly know that,

since the formation of the Sun and Earth,

the quarks that compose my body

have spun around the Milky Way twenty times.

6.

I am a thin sliver of doubt

floating upon a sea of devastating tranquility.

Yet I dream with the velocity

of exploding stars.
