A Creation Story


It seems to have

started as an argument.

Nothing became something,

rapidly expanding

to a whole laundry list

of things. Separation

and settlement followed.

Over time things cooled.

Mother got her planets, Father

took to the stars.

As in any divorce,

vast distances opened,

and continue to grow.
