The Order Of Things

There are moments
in which the whole universe
collapses into one point,
crushing everything together,
creating more heat and friction,
and gravity and pain
then you can fathom.
And then in the next moment,
everything turns
inside-out
and a whole new Universe is born
and begins spinning in an orderly fashion.

 Now is one of those moments.

Experiencing
this dance of sound and fury,
waiting with slow breath,
until everything falls back
into natural order.
