unrealized epiphanies on a celestial scale

 

Lee Clark Zumpe

 

 

i.

you can finger falling figments, trace the spiraling cosmos
on the wings of extinct butterflies, and waltz
with the aborted ghosts
of unborn galaxies

ii.

the estrangement of science and mysticism obscures
our unidentified potential

iii.

we are all just so much stardust
and unrehearsed dream
