“Every atom in your body came from a star that exploded. And, the atoms in your left hand probably came from a different star than your right hand. It really is the most poetic thing I know about physics: You are all stardust. You couldnt be here if stars hadn’t exploded, because the elements - the carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, iron, all the things that matter for evolution and for life - weren’t created at the beginning of time. They were created in the nuclear furnaces of stars, and the only way for them to get into your body is if those stars were kind enough to explode. So, forget Jesus. The stars died so that you could be here today.”

I was 21 when we met.
I don’t remember much.
I was homeless and on a bender, sleeping on a couch in the Tenderloin.
and you met me at Bigfoot.
all I remember is hair and a smile and I thought ‘damn.’
and I knew I had to see you again.
now I’m closer to 23 and I don’t think either of us…
