As Accident, We Think

Energy attracts, attacks, enacts,
adjoins, purloins, conjoins,
repels, impels, compels,
subsumes, assumes, consumes,
expends, distends, extends,
engenders, fashions everything
we are: unloaded from catastrophes
of gas and dust exploded off a star:
and then, we think, as accident,
when all the quarks and leptons
had aligned into whatever prototype
of working mind began ascending
into sentience from the molten mud –
when a quadrillionth cosmic jolt
required Push to come to Shove –
it entrusted us with love.
