we are made of starstuff.

(inspired by Dr. Carl Sagan)

stringed, strung, cobbled together, dna sewn from the cosmic rubble,

theoretically plausible, infinite universes side by side,

floating in the quantum cauldron, within a bubble.

flotsam and jetsam in spaces between spaces,

where time, and days, kisses and tears, fears and smiles, 

racing, blurring all into cosmic dust,

stoic wills, loves worn down into crumbling rust.

starstuff, is all we are,

hewn through eons, within us, and into the stellar void so far.

starstuff is all,

we ever were,

starstuff is all,

we still are,
starstuff is from where we came to be,

just starstuff:

you, and me.
