Earth-rise

From one perspective Apollo 8’s
Earthrise
is a perfect metaphor for a Higgs boson;
or perhaps that’s really the god particle, itself,

unintentionally leaving an empty stage,
a vacuum with more pull
than space, itself,

for fools and miscreants
and worse,
both corporeal and
incorporated.
