Poem integral to the Work

Once upon a Carboniferous Period time
COMPRESSEDSHELLSBONES of billions of wee sea creatures
made the sea bed, then
were lifted high into the sky
by gargantuan planetry forces
a millimetre a year…….
over millions of years…….

I sit for a minute upon on this ancient gray graveyard in the sky
contemplating eternity while
digesting a Milky Way
