On Being Broke

Broken inside but still ticking
No way of knowing
Where this train is going

So many dangerous words
Dangerous thoughts
Evil beckons slyly

For a chance
To flower

Poison dripping
Into my soul

I would have to save this whole awful world
To make a dent in my perfect wrongness

Or just go away
Quickly and quietly
Before doing any more harm

The dark side of cosmology.

I really love science – it’s endlessly fascinating and enthralling. But sobering to know that all that science currently has to say pertains to just 5% of what’s out there. The most exciting frontier, for me, is that of our own mind and how consciousness emerges from the particle zoo.
