Living in Parallels

Galaxies ripple against the cornerstone
of my DNA like the angry surface of savage
rivers disrupted by overflowing waters
from unexpected summer rains sounding
rushing roars of ten billion voices from all
the lives I’ll never get the chance to live,
their echoes fading like ghosts before
reaching my ears and their possibilities
shining like stardust in the shedding of
a lifetime of sudden inexplicable tears.
