Cosmological Bowling

If this thing we’re in
has no beginning,
center, end or edge,
why would we ever
have to hedge a bet?
Infinity is on our side –
can get us anything
we want because it
can’t not always have it.
Distances are moot,
there is no time,
and size can’t matter.
That’s the soul of it.
We’re connected by
existence to the whole
of it. But let us, for

the game of it, set up
the pins of our resistance
to a goal, contrive
a ball that fits our

fingers, aim, and bowl,
and watch while
the resisting pins
rescind their haughty

spin against the thing
we’re in, and scatter.
Existence freely serves
itself up on a platter.
