COSMOLOGY 101

Poetry by Emanuel Garcia

We claim that an infinity
Can come from one

That nothing is more virtual
Than empty space

That Nature’s laws
Leave wiggle room and

That the vast majority
Of the perceptible is
Dark

Perhaps
In knowing more
About what brought us
Here
And what will bring us
Hence

The further fact that
Neither mass nor energy
Can ever be destroyed

Would help explain
The fate of hope within
This gravity of endless blood

Join us in defending the truth before it’s too late

The future of independent journalism is uncertain, and the consequences of losing it are too grave to ignore. To ensure Truthout remains safe, strong, and free, we need to raise $50,000 in the next 10 days. Every dollar raised goes directly toward the costs of producing news you can trust.

Please give what you can — because by supporting us with a tax-deductible donation, you’re not just preserving a source of news, you’re helping to safeguard what’s left of our democracy.
