  random poem idea from random poem idea generator: realize you were right all along about dark matter as though skywriting (won’t be using the skywriting part because it makes no sense to me)

Through numberless seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, years, centuries, millennia
Of zooming through interstellar space
(gave a whole new meaning to the word “boredom”)
Partner Harari and I played every card game known to man, woman, or alien
An unimaginable number of times:
Crazy Eights
Fan Tan
Steal the Old Man’s Bundle
Bullshit (aka I Doubt It for prigs)
Just to name a few
Every possible variety of poker
Read about a billion books
Tried our hands at drawing, poetry, music
With pretty dismal results but it passed the time
Tried to learn a new language
Did yoga
Exercised endlessly
Then one moment
We saw it
The dark matter, it had a sign on it that said “DARK MATTER HERE”
In English!
And saw it was all the socks that disappeared
Over all the millennia of laundry
