“Cosmic Convergence” by Dirk Hooper

The universe, and us, are arranged in a mirrored union

of veracity and obfuscation, both macro and micro.

We are starstuff and antimatter, flowing, fragile

and focused on fighting against fate.


There is a cosmic convergence

…and then there’s candy


The Big Bang, which gave us our celestial bodies

infused us with crystalline dust and the memory of a thousand

suns, burning, blinding brilliance and fueling our desires,

eventually leaving us with the detritus of our existence.


There is a cosmic convergence

…and then there’s candy


Conversely, we are composted, like sweet music,

of all manner of infinitesimal quarks; she’s Charmed

and Bottom, I’m Strange and Top.  We’re swirling with

unseen forces, influenced by gravity and circumstance.


There is a cosmic convergence

…and then there’s candy


Somewhere out there, or down here, there is a Unified Field Theory.

It will bind our being with one complete universal truth

that answers all our fears and heralds our ascendance,

but until then…


There is a cosmic convergence

And her lips taste like candy.
