‘Nebula Girl’, Maria DePaul

Amorphous hazy
Shapeless collection
Of dust gravity
Has not taken hold

Looking out into
Vast empty space
Mostly dark matter
Pulled by many forces

To become whole
Means yielding to
Internal energy
Growing firmer

The alternative is
To become absorbed
By everything else
Or disintegrate utterly
