By Benjamin Shapiro
A chance encounter of atoms,

A holding of particulate hands 

Forming into groups,

Into cells, 

Into skin 

Tissue 

Organs

Systems

Bodies, then

A chance encounter of bodies 

A holding of human hands

Forming into couples,

Into family 

Tribes

Villages

Cities

Countries, then

A chance encounter of countries 

A holding up of fists 

Turning into punches 

Into gunfire 

Battles

Wars

Destruction, then

Targeted separation of atoms

A tearing asunder

Tearing apart countries

Cities

Villages 

Tribes

Family

Couple

Body

Systems

Organs

Tissues

Skin

Cells, then
Begin again.
