The Grand Scheme Of Things - Poem by Lynn W. Petty
How important I feel, indomitable, invincible.
Then, I read they found a nebula; a white illuminate;
An interfuse of gaseous light, hung from the galactic ceiling.
Deep within the deepest dark of darkest night is the forming
Of a new star, seven thousand light years away,
Its gas-cloud formation towering six trillion miles.
I, with an average weight of one-hundred-seventy-five pounds;
Standing five feet ten and one-half inches tall; a life span
Approximately, seventy-five years, have suddenly been struck
With the realization of how supercilious I am in the grand scheme
