WE STAND ON A CONSTANT THRESHOLD OF
A QUANTUM HIERARCHY, UNIVERSAL AND PURE
THE ECHO AMID SILENCE AN EPOCH FROM ANTIQUITY
OF RED-SHIFTING MATTER, FINITE YET UNBOUNDED
THE ETHEREAL NOMENCLATURE OF GRANDEUR, ON HIGH


WHERE THE RELATIVE IS IRRELEVANT
AND IMMENSITY IS ETERNITY
FOREVER AND EVER, AMEN
YET, THE UNIVERSE ENCOMPASSES AND ENGULFS
EVEN, ALMOST, INFINITY AS AN ATOM


AND I SAW ETERNITY THE OTHER NIGHT
THE UNVANQUISHED BLACK SPLENDOR
OF THE EDGE OF FOREVER
WHERE OUR CONSCIENCE AND COMPREHENSION
FAIL FROM FRAILTY


YET, NINE WORLDS I REMEMBER
A COMMUNITY OF MATTER
AND, BY THOUGHT, I COMPREHEND OUR WORLD
HEAVEN AND EARTH ARE AS OLD AS I
AND ALL THINGS ARE ONE


II.PERPETUAL
THROUGH THE EYES OF NIGHT
WE SEE AN INTIMATION
OF A FRAIL EXISTENCE
A FABRIC, AND A VOID
WHERE THE GREATEST
HAVE GREATER STILL


ON OUTWARD, AND UPWARDS
SPIRALING, FOREVER
ARE ASCENTS, DESCENTS
PERPETUAL


SEEING FAR ENOUGH
TO BE BLINDED BY DARKNESS
GRASP, YET NEVER REACH
A BASTION ETERNAL
BOUNDARIED ONLY BY CONSCIENCE
AND A FLACCID UNDERSTANDING
ATHANASIA IN ALL AGES
IN ALL DIRECTIONS
IN ALL MINDS


FILLED WITH ELEGANT TRUTHS,
AND PRISTINE ILLUSIONS,
STRETCH OUT YOUR EYES
WHERE THE GREATEST
HAVE GREATER STILL
PERPETUAL
