I journeyed long upon the way, e-mailed through your router
hello "Henry", good to greet, I am in your computer
I am between him and her, so I am gender neuter
I am ten years landing along your northern equinox
please, please do not delete, nor reject me out your junk box !
I listen well, babble-on, way beyond your orthodox
who are you my strange new friend ? how come you to these parts ?
some far-off alien ? some local magical arts ?
my laptop is full, little room for viral upstarts !
I am facsimile convert, downloaded thinking thing
my "other" sent me hereabouts, to move around and sing
I found your tiny 'voyagers', we'll maybe have a fling
I am "Coma", from your neighbouring super-cluster
galaxy "four-nine-eleven", spiral reddish lustre
I am genuine, there's no reason for you to fluster !
what is this, your "other" ? mum or dad or just a friend ?
solid or ephemeral, a more exotic blend ?
does your kin live by solar-shine ? help me comprehend
I hail from binary stars, fourth world from the smaller sun
atmospheric, oceanic, my place of early fun
I emerged from companion orb, the larger, drier one
I have many off-springs, siblings, three-way parental group
before this, I was my "other", we still maintain a loop
I let me know if I'm feeling sad or else cock-a-hoop
why leave your home ? be straight and openly transparent
mindful organism, your form is not apparent
why here ? the whole and nothing but the truth, declarant !
I ponder whether intelligence is more scarce than rife
my erstwhile homely shape, a well-rounded configured life
I would roll along, float on water, fly above the strife
I still feel my old self, my globular presence flexing
vital organs deep within me, precious and perplexing
I would change my looks and texture, outward skin complexing
what is your power ? your fundamental essence now ?
such an implausible trip, such uncanny know-how !
how far to get here ? how long travelling did you allow ?
I am propagating wave, riven annihilation
energetic handshake, anti-matter liberation
I burrowed down and up again, just twelve hours duration !
I swallowed light years, some three hundred and fifty million
plus those recession miles, one trillion, three hundred billion
I feel so remote, two quadrillion, one hundred trillion
chasms in a blink, then spent one decade doing what ?
sleeper or some well-disguised dormant digital bot
then probed our double-u, double-u, double-u dot !
I defeat space by square-rooting sequential time elapsed
gives the multiplier, momentary distance collapsed
I know I sound far-fetched, a puzzling paradox perhaps
I sojourned ten sunshine orbits, learning your many ways
your internet resonates, a more audible phase
I heard through the grapevine, a subterranean maze
your knowledge impresses ! what makes everything work ?
was there a big bang arising from the empty murk ?
does some universal ancient tinkler out there lurk ?
the "universe", everything, all possibility
something trumps nothing, the one certain probability
multiples, division, all within this stability
two main components: the "over-verse" and the "under-verse"
the former; flickering fields which come and go, intersperse
spawning the latter; a bubble, enduring and diverse
where is the "over-verse" ? is our "cosmos" the bubble ?
the "under-verse", is this the land of quantum trouble ?
what is to prevent all these things ending up as rubble ?
wrapping round the interior, the "cosmos" is a membrane
separates over- from under-, a space-time window pane
look up at fast-time passing, look down at the quantum plane
superposition, filamentary wobble-jelly
starting conditions, the material underbelly
covering the bubbles' expanding momentous welly
fiery beginning, speeding up, a whimpering end ?
creator, before and after, what does it portend ?
knowledge, philosophy and logic, what do you contend ?
universality wholly subsumes a creator
no time, no place, just becoming, no early no later
as nothing bows to the higher chance of something greater
no big bang, just transition, enclosure, separation
space, time, force, energy, substance, captured preparation
inflation underpinning the bubbles' preservation
any evidence, practical support for this view ?
gobbledegook, empiricism is overdue !
so what reason and what rationale should we pursue ?
accelerate above, then borrow moments from below
sub-light duration shrinks, while spatial progress starts to grow
plunge across rapids on the escalator river-flow
no space nor speed, just inflating time on the underside
flipping between over- and under-, speed limit defied
that is how I got here, so clearly, I do not misguide !
much to take in, my "Coma" friend, lots of crazy stuff
I need to think, scratch my brain, this is not a rebuff
come back again soon, you will be welcomed, sure enough !
