I Speak A Hindu Rant

9,654,326,120,000 years or thereabouts,

the rishis say, trace the arc of planetary ego.

TIME magazine called these “reassuring statistics.”

Divine and pathetic, we are like sparks unaware

of the fire they’re a part of.

Here we go again, piloting the aircraft while our

know-how extends no further than a corner

of the dashboard!

Please, ye arbitors of public opinion, expound

again upon these reassuring statistics from

your tobacco-spitting position in the cosmic dugout–

No, hold that thought, for honestly, we haven’t the time.

At 27 years my personal Kali Yuga is complete.

Sextillions of years have dissolved into a moment

of the soul, yours and mine.

Mankind, rest assured!
