The meteorite was a revelation.
It knocked out recent grief,
pinning me like a luna moth
to the large board of the cosmos.
I examined the grid that led
this pitted piece of star stuff
to be at the same coordinates
as my own ephemeral bit of flesh.
I studied astronomy,
geography, theosophy, philosophy.
They all said the same things,
the same things,
in languages only recently revealed.
Universe within a universe---
You look out, and see in.
