cosmos


end-of-summer webs woven
against the wall
and the cloud an ovary
across the moon
sways
the evening still
cool
breath standing
in the vacuum

life
as slow as life
and faster than light
the cosmos
we are

the cosmos we were
egg and seed
a creation miracle evolved
from the ovary cloud
the fractured moon
the spinning universe
and beyond

in the beginning
