Gravity Conceit


Nature’s Gravity Would not Stop

More and more, and less and less
this world to me seems real unreal
unfathomable in its unreason, treason,
fantastic in its natural logic and rational
order—and yet it is this unreason, this
human element, that defines not merely
human, but life, reeling in what’s real,
and all the living universe, all that
herein holds significance—to us,
and to all like us—and unlike, yet
similar in these irrational needs
for reason, for order, for excuses
to deny surrender, to deny the most
natural gravity: Death—and his
permanent dominion for all we know . . .
