I Know Distance Makes the Heart Grow Fonder, But This Is Ridiculous | NaPoWriMo 18.13

(Candidate for farthest star seen)

I forgive you for
being obsessed
with the farthest star

The most remote and thus
the oldest
twinkling of the universe

As separated from what
we know
as possible to be.

Shining on us with
the most aged
light.

There can only be one
farthest.
One oldest.

I would
bet on
some life
elsewhere
.
the chances
of something
more complex
raise more doubts
.
from one cell to
many, changing
metabolics
ever harder
.
if I were to bet
on any much less
many eyes gazing
back at us from far
.
long
odds
.
.
.
.
.
but the universe is longer
