He didn’t build the bridge, because
He was gazing at the moon. And then
He didn’t go to the moon because
He was already in the den
Of a creature larger than a solar
System. He saw lines of reason,
He created palaces, he floated
On the heat and cold of every season.
“Look at more than your eyes can see,
At more than a pattern, and in the pattern
Right and wrong and humility.
Love Earth and Mars, and yellow Saturn,”
A wind of photons, a shiver of mind
Creates a tower of Pisa, a Hermia,
Creates a curtain of light, creates
A tumbling rock, panspermia.
