It may take one smart spin or a hundred turns
to burn revolutions into our minds,
to create new synapses, blunders
free of tattered storybook blurbs,
to account for brilliant emergence
of a universe blinking in billions
of years, raising us from turds
through countless failed goals
into dreams of souls.
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
