Littlebigbang Theory

cold dark matter, some of it bright and hot
some of it not matter
on such a scale that it might appear
arrested, frozen, fixed
in crystal spheres
but in reality flying
outwards from a single point of origin

Play that film backwards—Brian Cox

tracing the reverse trajectory
of all that is or has ever been

brings us at last, second by second
gasping on the shores of cosmic time

to a garden shed near Banbury

there a mild goddess sits
the un-ancient of days
her finger on the button
what done it all

her name the horn of becoming
the park-keeper at the gates of dawn

the shot that was heard around the shed
