Cosmic Peep Show
As a piece of cosmos here on land,
I like to think
we wear these skins like Christmas sweaters,
filling these threads with power,
adding color to our nebulas
so that when we're done
and get back up to the stars,
we're right on time.
The "Before & After" on the Catwalk of Space:
A split screen reveal
shows the glimmer of light we once were--
alongside what we've become after all that time
walking bi-pedal bodies
of heaven on earth,
no longer struggling to hold our sparks in,
swallowing our sunbeam burps.
to glow in our Multiverse hometown,
at last in our true flesh,
shamelessly letting our hair down
in bodacious flowing waves
of oooh and ahhhh.
