Poem: I'm agnostic about atheism

Scientists say
When a star is born,
Pandemonium reigns

In a cosmic soup
Of emission nebulas, hydrogen, dust nebulas,
Dark absorption nebulas of dust,

And other stars that spawn and explode.
After tens of millions years more,
The gas and the dust disperse

And an open cluster
Of survivors

The stars rotate and revolve
And shimmy and shake
At their own pace.

Billions and billions
Of stars and planets
Largely steer clear

Of one another,
Forging patterns
And rhythms in the cosmos.

The stars sing, the planets hum,
And you wonder why
I'm agnostic about atheism.
