Gravitational Waves

Inspired by a recent scientific discovery
Pascal quailed at the scale
Of the solar system
The 'terror of infinite spaces'
(Reassuringly vague)
How would he have felt
If he knew what we know?
That the sun is just a grain of sand
On the massive beach of the Galaxy
Which itself is just another fleck of Quartz
Among mountains of time and light
Maybe he we would just perch on the hot sand
Under a parasol
Trying to read with polarised sun glasses
A  book of provocative thoughts
Barely noticing his skin melt in
The ultraviolence of the sun
Just thinking of another beer
While someone he doesn't know or desires
(Another whole universe)
Starts dipping their toes
In an electric sea
