the Big Crunch
“...all places that exist today were
originally the same place.”
                – Timothy Ferris


now that you’ve
gone

to a place
far away where
i’m sure
you’re
much happier

i hope that the
astrophysicists and
cosmologists
are wrong and
the
universe isn’t
going to expand
indefinitely

i hope that
it will
contract back
to a singularity
   
the “Big Crunch”

where every place in
the universe
will once again be
the same
and
where you
and i will have
no choice but
to be together
again

until then
i will
wait
