The Story of Stardust

The story ends

with a beginning.


All stories end

with beginnings

because no story

ever ends.


It’s life’s

most obvious

secret.


The story

of stardust.


The story

of the primordial singularity.


The story

of godstuff.


The story of you and your mom and her mom and her mom and her mom and her mom and her mom and her mom and her mom and her mom and her mom and her mom and her mom’s mother.


I think

the point here

is to remind you

that you should

throw a fistful

of moist earth

up to the sky

to answer

the question,

“From where did I come?”
