A Rippling Of the Space-Time Fabric

A rippling of the space-time fabric
In a split second of frenzy ringing
The universe like a bell
More? Hmmm? More?
Disappearing into gravitational
Waves of agitation

I believe we’ve achieved

Ring My Bell

Another eight or so suns’ worth of mass and energy disappeared into gravitational waves, ripples of the space-time fabric, in a split-second of cosmic frenzy, ringing the universe like a bell… — Dennis Overbye

Watching had the indescribably
Intense feeling of being in the
Presence of an event

Severity and allowance
Switch and signal
Plead what you want to plead
Testify what you want to testify
Persuade only too well
With latent sensuality
And sufficient restraint
Hold it in check then
Appease ancient gods
With a violent transfer of power
And the force of contradiction
There’s the shelter object
At the level crossing
Switched on by this love thing
The gate crashing ideal

The hidden ripeness
Which tears open
Thawing ever
