Does one atom of hydrogen give birth to another atom of hydrogen?
Do universes meet in cocktail lounges over shots of vodka and beer?
Does one thing lead to another until one of them asks, “My place or yours?”
Why aren’t there selfish nuclear reactors whose teleology is to go forth and multiply
until they cover the planet and dispense with humankind?
Are ants campaigning to be the next great apes, husbanding atomic aphids and milking them for electric power?
Is the moon in her barren milkiness protectress of earth from stinging meteors?
Is she Diana, chaste huntress of asteroids?
When worlds age do they retire to Mexico, learn a little Spanish,
and read the Aztec Gazette?
