Dark matter (38/26)

Another revolution
her around him
he one bright point
space all around
dark
cold
vast.

What is this dark matter all around
that binds us all together?
Clumping ever more densely
bringing a big crunch –
maybe.

She casts a warm glow
in the cold night
like a café on a dark street
offering a bit of warmth.

Another revolution around the sun
and I am still
on this planet.
The dark matter in me
clumps ever denser
creating unfamiliar, worrisome structures
and I wait
wondering if the crunch will come.
