Asking the Abyss

by Marshall Begel

“The James Webb Space Telescope recently captured a stunning new image of…
an orange formation in the unmistakable shape of a question mark…”

For eons we have looked above
For answers to our questions
On grief and joy, on angst and love,
And followed all suggestions.

But as we begged the astral plane
To tell us what to do,
We never thought to entertain
That it had questions, too.
