a very big bang [Nov. 27th, 2008|03:52 pm]
8 or so bees in my bonnet
[music |goldfrapp - happiness]

werner von braun saw the end pretty clear
unlike poor old robert j, who had the misfortune
of understanding the destruction of his work:

look away now...

a thousand flashes like the sun
ten thousand billowing spires of cloud
lovely as orchids slowly piercing the stratosphere

a million pigs,
rendered, from some poor pink squealing mammal
to carbon shadow in an instant...

blinded, his disordinary mind was tuned to
the perfectly insane pragmatism
of mutually assured destruction.

and now we load up the collider
to see the universe in minature.

it was a very big bang.
wasn't it?
