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.
