The mote in the breath

A last breath streams across the sky,
punctuated with moments and lives

and worlds and impacts and crumbling craters.
A last breath where dreams are traveling

out to the distant past shooting thoughts,
impressions, epiphanies back to the dot

in the sunbeam in the last breath. Unrealized
zeros and ones wait to be put in order.

I saw our past, I hypothesized our future,
in that last breath — but — I never saw

our present place in that last breath. Because
in that last breath we were only a mote, lost.

The one pixel

The one pixel

In one pixel a thousand suns burn
In one pixel a comet falls to pieces
In one pixel a stellar gasp expells hydrogen
In one pixel a collision disturbs unmoving dust
In one pixel a continuous spinning
In one pixel a violent end
In one pixel we forget the sky, but–
In one million pixels a universe
is less than contained
