I Didn’t Bring You A T-shirt

We live fast,

our top speed:

tens of thousands of km per second;

not much for a photon,

but our bodies are a drag, spaceship, too;

it’ll take many millennia, your reference frame,

to crawl to the galactic core

and back again.

No one will be here

to oo and ahh over our gorgeous snaps

of the myriads of proximate suns,

the clouds of swirling incandescent gas,

and the great big nothing in the center,

cept maybe some hyperevolved insects,

but to them we’re not friends,

or enemies,

or even dinner;

but objects of study:

anatomy, physiology, behavior, etc.


           of course,
