The Necessary Myth

The necessary myth
causes undeniable trembling
at the thought that this
is all that there is
nothing more than a little
rhythmical grumbling at
the cause of chemical synthesis
which has not been discovered yet yet
lies shifting at the center
before the center had been lost
of every single living thing
in these last days
waiting to be found
in the last place we look
