We All Become Light - Poem by Robert VazquezPacheco

We are all clear that all this will end. Entropy
Is entropy after all. The leaves fall, the flowers

Die, youth disappears, milk spoils…okay the list
Can get a little depressing. Everything changes

into something else although what that is… I think
Somebody said everything becomes light but maybe

That was just me. All information starts to dissolve
Into the jello mold of consciousness. You pick the

Color. Citations and sources start to blend. I figure
A general letter of thank you to all the involved

Parties will suffice. It is a pretty image though.
Becoming light when everything changes into

Something else. Sounds good physics to me.
And And I’d like to think that all the lucky ones

Are blazing like suns somewhere both close and far.
Along with the Romanovs, the Bourbons, the Hapsburgs

Even the Borgia, everybody gets to glitter. It’s nice to
See the falling leaves flash into light. We all become light.
