Ladies And Gentlemen In Outer Space

Here is my philosophy:
Everything changes (the word “everything”
Has just changed as the
Word “change” has: it now
Means “no change”) so
Quickly that it literally surpasses my belief,
Charges right past it
Like some of the giant
Ideas in this area.
I had no beginning and I shall have
No end: the beam of light
Stretches out before and behind
And I cook the vegetables
For a few minutes only,
The fewer the better. Butter
And serve. Here is my
Philosophy: butter and serve.
