NANO

Written by: Mel Brake

Everyman man wants her
spending all of their earned worth

to build her monuments
to out do and out perform 
each other

Everyman has dreamed of her
wrote plays and stories

Everyman has died for her
devoted scientific experiences
looking for her

Like Prince Charming
a life searching and seeking
and wandering life's path

Nano is coy
and small
one billionth of dark light

Nano sites in a corner
riding a train on the Milky Way Corridor

But everyman does not see her
They are blind to her presence and place

Everyman looks everywhere
Everyman thinks every thought
Everyman belies her myth
But everyman does not go inside
the box

Unlike Pandora's box
Nano is inviting
sits and waits
to be discovered
