Will the Universe remember us after we’re gone?


When galaxies unfurl their softened arms

releasing

what was once held close


Stars

blink,

bleary-eyed,

before winking out of existence


The cosmos stained in a chaotic dispersion of matter


(no matter:)


We were here

We’ll etch on the Space that remains

a pinprick of time in a fraying corner

of the cosmic blanket

where we rubbed our thumbs in comfort.
