"Gravity Abhors a Room Full of Vacuum" - Joey Connolly
[dedicated to Kay Ryan, American poet laureate]

well its up the stairs and back down the stairs
goes the mini mind, mighty mouse, and souse
running wild inside outside who cares
what they have left now is an empty house
first there is none then there is more nothing
string theory, dark energy, and dark matter
upstairs angel choirs on pinheads sing
suckers deprived as memory banks get fatter
a vacuum between each neural synapse
as billions exist in comfort and death
coming and going they succeed and lapse
with inhale and exhale of every breath
cosmic Electrolux and Hoover salesman
each has a vacuum and a vacuous plan
