"Outside the Universe"
It is all matter and energy that exists.
The stars at the far end,
a vast number of empty spaces.
In which nothing would seem to happen
for lightyears and beyond - the great stillnes.
Beautifully curved lines
and sheets of light
make up all the galaxies
of epoch's ago
Monstrous spiraling arms
swirling in and out
as we try to speed up light
Exploding clusters of stars
of which some develop into dense eternal blackness
Then devouring others
From quantum uncertainties
to massive relativistic bodies
Are we trying to chase/catch the infinite?
Or will it reach its equilibrium?
At which everything will break down again,
into this tiny dot of unbearable bright light.
