For those who praise abstinence, the big bang
seems quite an obscene and vulgar notion –
that the entire world would just simply hang
together, making circular motions
without a divine rudder seems absurd.
But the cosmos doesn’t need approval;
it did just fine before the written word,
coping with addition and removal
of all kinds of humorless parasites
with a simple shrug and a hearty laugh,
finding beauty in each new thing in turn,
never bothering with property rights,
only possibilities, knowing half
would gladly sing along, or want to learn.
