To Ask, To Cry

Gary Edward Geraci


atoms and electrons arranged,

caused, acts originating

from absolute nothingness.


the effect, mater, now matters,

a platform for poets,

rational thinkers, and


serious inquirers.

planting two feet into

ground that isn’t preexistent,


baffling, the vast numbers

whom didn’t see it.

content to conclude


planetary beauty an

entitlement, her order

the staple, stable science


serves bland pastiche on plates.

is it not worthy of further

study or consideration?


but to ask, an axiom acts

and transcends the empirical;

to cry, inclines his Holy Hands.
