Be still in this moment.
An atom, a terminus
in The Vast.
In this moment.
A streak of sentience no larger than a coffin,
sailing the galaxy a billion leagues a year,
with only the stars to remind us we are moving at all.
Twelve million miles since yesterday,
Follow the sun and the moon,
as the stars are too far.
Put one hand over your heart,
and one finger to your lips.
Life breathes in your blood.
Close your eyes to why, when, and then.
