A BRIEF HISTORY OF TIME


A BRIEF HISTORY OF TIME


Write down what you need to remember:
I can't slip out of this mode.
I want to enter deeper into the molecular structure of the word,
the double helix spyrocheting through our genes
from the first fires, to the age of light.
And now we can't put out the flame.
It consumes us with a passion
until we are etherized against the stars,
climbing the spiral, exploding,
imploding, dividing, multiplying in geometric ecstasy
until the shining pyramids invert,
become the apex of the hole
that consuming blackness,
that sucks us into it,
that strips molecules from memory.
A hungry cancer feeding on light,
even quarks lose their charm.
We are limited by what we know,
and don't know,
our descent and metaphysical hunger
in the resonating cells, dialectical
notebooks, a brief history of time. 

date? 92?
9/19/90? CPITS? But I was in NM.
possibly 1992?
