It is an endless hollow
A galaxy undefined by constraint
Perimeters or borders
A place where beings orbit
In the absence of compasses
But are guided by forces of fatum
It nourishes great deeds and even maddening folly
And makes common men, Neil Armstrongs
And Romeo Monatagues
It also rests as the only investment
To make love in the absence of flesh
When two people fall down – even head over heels
That chute of infinity
When days fleet with no drag
And you’re taken on a cosmic ride
As a hitchhiker of another
After all love is the trinity of body, soul and mind
Running 26 light miles and 385 light yards
Of a marathon we all know as
Sheer timelessness.
