Love is dark matter

Love is dark matter:

unseen, but present,

and sustaining

in its effects.


We cannot see it,

for it has

no substance

in the usual

material sense of

of being in the world.


But we know

it is there

living and working

in the human constellations

that stick together

and do not

fly apart.


Love is dark matter

in its undetectable ability

to bind us all together.
