Bags of groceries

Through space time

As I drove along Highway 118,
up the hill and through the forest,
guided by two ribbons of piled snow
towards the almost-full moon, I thought:
how curious, spinning here on this planet,
made of Big Bang detritus in space-time,
I am going home with nine bags
of groceries, one of which contains
JELL-O instant vanilla pudding.
