Sciences of Silence
Peggy Miller

From the book:


I count in the cells
of my finger
the teeming mitochondria
that trace by sequence
all the mothers of time.


Tuesday morning I pour milk
in my tea,
watch the pattern of milk fat
roll out geologic events:

curve of new rivers,     
push of clouds across a thin
scrape of glaciers crumbling

It goes on-
continent crashes against
suns spark, rogue planets

and galaxies collide-
until I sip it all away in
a warm uniting of sustenance
and body.
