c is the constant of causality

What is between us we can agree on

You are in the right, unhappily

I have mistakenly come and gone


If we must be extended in space

braked and breathing with mass

a witness to starlight tracing

always away from us its past


on its way to god knows where

The heavens are so vast and desolate

it kills people with sadness & fear—

if there is no absolute sense of it


yet there is still c, invariant

on the way from our history

Did we not share in that event

enrapt in beloved isometry?


I want to believe in love before

I die and out of my body flies

the last electric thought more

massless and spinning than wise.

R. Charboneau
