Neuroscientists know pleasure is dopamine
free-floating for a moment in the brain,
but what slides the bolt forward in the first place,
what makes that other tongue sunshine on your teeth?
Gravity, we know, brings everyone together,
but dark energy hauls ass to pull us apart.
What was the fuel that thrust an entire universe
through an atom's atom
at the Big Bang?
God, some say. Oh, god.
