Geochemistry gives rise seamlessly to biochemistry,
Proving the Unified Theory of Anything: I was, have been,
Immortal as long as I lived; we were, had been, alive.
Gunshots pop from the sound of the local interview,
And the young woman doing the interviewing only
Shrieks a few times in surprise, falls, and cries
Out "Oh my God! Oh my God!" Then she's dead,
Never to cry in sudden realization something terrible
Has happened, oh my god, again.
For a place to rest. Nothing more. More nothing. More less.
