55. Poetry by Scott Hvidsten

If time were a god

If time were a god
its home would spin with a force
to shape the galaxies.

Dazzling horizons
crown an unseen ruler who
guards eternity.

Time’s shackled to mass;
it moves on little clay feet
imprisoning us.

Beyond spacetime
there is nothing except thought—
an absence of weight.

There is the nexus:
where one sees infinity
without cloying eyes.
