The First Second
Let’s take a second, not just any one,
But the first second in the universe,
When everything was sorted as is now,
The start of being – quarks, innumerable,
Explosion edged space, full, outward bound,
Irregular to prefix nebulae,
And form the vastest galaxies,
You face the God, Creator of this show,
The big and small, and not on the outside,
A million times more clever than all science.
Then, God will meld particularities,
For heavy atoms, complex molecules,
And you, his creature thinking after him.
So, treasure now this second given you.
