| THE FUNNIEST THING |


Maybe the funniest thing
about the Universe is
this it makes us
all aliens we are
searching for so consistently

We share a beautiful,
common space which we,
however, haven't got familiar
good enough yet, so
it still surprises us

Many species are kept
in secret, therefore we
can't proudly say: Terra
cognita! And here is
resemblance to distant worlds

Somewhere far away, life
evolved in (no)ordinary forms
being, simultaneously, much more
widespread than we expect
or try to predict

Maybe the we way
want to say helo
is old-fashioned for ETs.
That undoubtedly is funny
fact about the Universe.
