Some Things Last Forever

First
the earth
was the
center of
the solar
system &
then the
sun itself
was &
then the
solar system
was part
of a
galaxy &
not a
very big
part
at that
& then
the galaxy
was a
smidgen
in the
big wide
universe before
it became
just a
universe
because
it was
seeming likely
there were
more out there
& now
it seems
possible that
there’s a
countless number
of universes
synapsing
one into
the other.

 

But things
are also
racing off
in the
other direction,
into the
infinitesimally
small.

 

We’ve come
a long way
since the
earth was
flat &
Columbus
discovered America.
