Provincial Provisional

I’m just a small town hick
I come from a tiny planet
In a back-water arm of a spiral galaxy
That you’ve probably never heard of.

I cling to small unoriginal hopes
I suffer from typical fears
Overwhelming, but not very interesting
When seen from an intergalactic perspective.

I’m pretty small
And the infinite universe
Well, it’s pretty fucking big
Big enough to swallow up my
Well, my everything—Gulp!

What a relief
To know my ego
No matter how vicious
Can never taint
The Big Forever
In which we abide.

Just Now
