Cosmic Record Keeping

Just wait
The immersion will come
Swiftly and extending its arms
To enfold the grass and the delta
In loving arms

But luggage will fall from the sky
Ruining any sense of cosmic justice
Uniforms will spread across the lush land
Looking for trinkets
Or bent reading glasses
Loving the rules that structured this hunt

And so they will put on latex gloves
Bend in the proper manner
Regulations A-F didn’t mention anything about
A bottle of snake vertebrae ensconced by a tree trunk
Time capsules will follow their own rules
Manipulating the universe so that discovery respects
Proper timelines and the order of succession
