The Cornucopia Of Inhabited Worlds

A new poem by Lars Gustafsson

The cornucopia of inhabited worlds

In some other worlds they have now confirmed
the Riemann prime number hypothesis

In some other worlds they are now forcing
some ancient mushrooms to confess for ages

In some other world the depths of darkness
is lit up from words cried by marvellous rocks

In many a world summer reigns
for a century, and the unfortunate ones

who were born on a winter day are
spending their lives fast asleep

suspended in light grey and
fur-lined cocoons

In some of the worlds also this poem
is written already by several poets
