Humility’s Empty Stomach

Paul measured the distance
laughter traveled.

He adopted all the orphaned poems
he happened upon during his walks.

Paul’s eye wandered the heavens
being drawn to distant light

experiencing the massive pull
of black holes.

He solved why feeling nothing
weighs the body down.

Paul searched for the perfect stillness.
For drop the mic conclusions.

He argued against human expansion
where there is no water.

Paul investigated rumors
that lead toward stray cat salvation.

He felt the stardust inside him
long for different gravities.
