GloPoWriMo: Day 30

Lost Dark Matter, Found

“The missing links
between galaxies
have finally been found.”

And with the loss
of lost dark matter
something stirred–
disappointment?
Hope?
Abandonment.

When it was lost
what was lost
within her didn’t matter–
we are without structure,
right?

But if structure
wound through
the baryons,
then the part
of her particles
that were missing
were simply

gone.
Empty.
Lost.

The vast
universe
was within
and there was
no room
for her.

Ah, well,
but Neptune
is in Pisces.

With one reason
gone, another steps
in to simply
take its place.

We become
whole
when wholly
lost.
