Evidence for the Big Bang

If I was one for 
arriving at metaphors 
before they’ve hatched 

a kind of reverse 
Easter bunny, or 
the moment in those cartoons 

when the ACME box 
arrives and you know 
an explosion is coming soon 

I guess I would say 
were it not for the chip 
on my shoulder 

a literal micro potato chip
you would know 
I’ll always be here 

evidence both for and 
against the Big Bang
that keeps leaving debris everywhere.
