brash improbable courtship
step in a gamble
each other a momentous step

the world’s largest nuclear program

“When I say ‘I,’ I am lying. Let us posit the ‘I’ of perception—neutral and limpid. Put it next to the ‘I’ of intermediation—when you look at it this way, my body belongs to me; or, more exactly, I belong to my body. What do we observe? An absence of contact. Fear what I say.” Michel Houellebecq
journey of what is our concept of nothing?
understand these vast new shapes
of whom science say journey of the universe
on display for a reward
moving then not
not moving then gone—all of it
