The Gilgamesh Eternal

i can’t have the Universe answer

i am only

only human

tossing rocks to the stars

waiting for aliens and gods to answer

the cycles of suns and moons
are
the vessels of containment

the years do not last because time is
the same
and
eternal

yet the protons still spin
electrons do the dance
and the neutrons make magic that eludes us

being the same and eternal is
the feeling in my heart for you

or again the human

what is left after these sweet computers
go to the heavens?

the ones i chased into the future to find you

the cold hard gray ones

for before them or any after or ever since

i can’t have the Universe answer

and this is all
what your pursed-lip kisses have sheltered
