"My God, It's Full of Stars" (Tracy K. Smith)

"Perhaps the great error is believing we’re alone, That the others have come and gone — a momentary blip — When all along, space might be choc-full of traffic, Bursting at the seams with energy we neither feel Nor see, flush against us, living, dying, deciding."

"Perhaps the great error is believing we’re alone,
That the others have come and gone — a momentary blip —
When all along, space might be choc-full of traffic,
Bursting at the seams with energy we neither feel
Nor see, flush against us, living, dying, deciding."

U.S.A. / 2011

From Smith's 2011 collection, Life on Mars: Poems, which won the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for Poetry.
