The Beginning

May 30, 2019

In my dream the cosmos was a dark room

and the Big Bang was a door opening. 

You know how it is, when that chink of light 

opens its mouth and swallows the walls, 

paints pictures on them, draws the lightshade. 

That mirror with the unsightly frame. 

Well that was the Big Bang, a door opening 

and suddenly I’m remembering that there 

are colours and angles and three dimensions 

and something other than the black.
