342nd Weekly Poetry Contest winner: The Silent Universe

by Bruce Boston

Precisely counting
the number of angels
dancing on the head

of a speeding quark,
physicists discovered
the Higgs bosun,

the God Particle,
with no sermons
to preach to us,

no commandments
for us to obey,
with nothing really

to tell us about
the nature of life
as we know it.

Appeared in Silver Blade
