Sludge [a poem about the Universe]


what if an asteroid shot it’s way past Jupiter and through our atmosphere?
what if it rocked earth off course and sent us out rogue into space?
would we find another star?
a g2? or a super giant that would swallow us up?
what if we launched off on a rocket to look for another home?
perhaps a super earth would solve our overpopulated city problem
twice the space
what’s on the other side of a black hole?
is that where slender man came from?
stretched his way through a wormhole faster than light can go?
why are our bodies so fragile?
why are our lives so short?
did methuselah really live nearly a thousand years?
was it because we had a thicker atmosphere back then?
or because eating unprocessed foods was the only available option?
is that part of what’s killing us at barely a tenth of methuselah’s lifespan?
where does god live?
is hell really fire forever?
why would satan stay?
doesn’t he have any power or real estate savvy?
is that the last thing we know: heaven and hell?
if everything in the universe is predetermined, life has no purpose
and this class along with every action guided action means nothing at all
are we no better than primordial sludge?
