All the warmth up there
merits a lonely man's stare

The plethora of galaxies in space
given to wild goose chase

What are astronomers to make of all the stars?
Has the universe gone too far?

Sprawling more than suburbs ever could
And God said it was good!

A poet sighs
to see pale skies

Sick with blood letting
So much light trapped in a jeweler's setting

Philip - so good to read you again and know that couplets become you in this cosmic poem. Great use of the word "sprawling" and I really like that intriguing last line.

In sickness as in health, we are bound to exist in this limitless phantasmagoria. A pleasure to ingest your exquisitely pared pairs.

The most unsettling and simultaneously comforting part about infiniteness as a concept, to me, is the fact that somewhere an endpoint exists who may be firing back into the abyss you're sitting in.
