Postcard 16


Every molecule in our bodies is
Older, by many orders of magnitude,
Than the numbers represented by
The candles on our cakes
The distances they've travelled
Exceed those of even our most
Stalwart of Voyagers and
Intrepid of Pioneers. As they
Journeyed from the center of
Stars from a long time ago and galaxies
Far, far away, what did our
Building blocks lean about
The capricious nature of
Time and Space? What
Could we learn from just
The water which we borrow?
If only we could speak the
Language of electrons
