They say it's always five o'clock
But generally by somewhere, they still mean
I think we should take a more
Perhaps if we consider enough planets,
it can be whenever we want.
I will fly to Mars on Tuesday
and enjoy the weekend there.
Then I can call my mother on
Alpha Centauri Tertius
to find she is giving me birth.
Meanwhile, we learn the Kaiser is plotting
to conquer France via neutral
Belgian space from a few stars away.
Pilgrims travel across the galaxy
to see the Christ
in Holy Crucifixion, but become
too impatient to wait for the empty tomb.
As people travel further out,
they find where the universe
is being born.
A tourist takes a picture, forgetting
to turn off the flash,
and the photons enter the womb,
and the universe is never the same.
