You don’t need a telescope,
To realize the message in our stars.
Written in plain sight,
The darkest secret of the universe.

The fluent Morse Code,
The vehemence of light.
A risk they take to communicate,
As their elderly turn to Black holes.

That is the realisation that
Got Galileo under house arrest:
Nothing is bigger than nothingness.
“If I zoom out a little I won’t see you.”

Protagonist Disease powers life.
But a sad reality is that,
In the frame of reference that matters,
You simply don’t exist.

Enjoy your pocket universe!
