7. Unraveling

someday it will no longer be a mystery
how paramecium from ancient seas
became creatures
constructing ships traversing galaxies

then perhaps we'll understand
how stellar debris
became intelligence
& cosmic dust
planetery bodies

someday our most advanced discoveries
will seem simple & matter-of-fact

If we can learn how to cooperate
& live in peace

our offspring will see
worlds that are amazing:

we are not the final products
of evolution –
just tiny worms
moving forward
one fraction of one inch
