... a star made of nameless gases and nuclear war resting in the middle of some orbit, rose and sunk, expanded and contracted without love or mistakes, and burning hotter than any aching mouth, exploded. its pieces of light and sound sailed through dark and senseless matters without any eyes watching. these pieces (now separated from the parts that made their existence purposeful) occupied new territories and in their presence and within their gravity, pulled other pieces to them becoming more monumental within each countless instant. when some of these quarks and their gluons met, they had felt as if they were made for one another (because they were, and before the explosion had been quite close) and went on to form neutrons, protons, atoms, and laughter.
