Dark Matter

Echoes of silence in the universe cavern
match strikes reveal fuzzy details, burn out.

Planet-bound detectives examine celestial clues
smoking pipes in their dressing gowns.

Remnant core of stars,
white dwarfs fade to oblivion.

Weakly interactive massive particles
struggle to lift weights in the galactic gym.

Massive compact halo objects
lurk around the edges of an angel's sanity.

Hey man—boxers or briefs?
MACHO or WIMP?

Zwicky jumped off the ski ramp
near the Big Bang observatory.

The universe is missing matter
& the spherical bastards can't find it.
