Initial Singularity

for Samuel Delany

Before even silence is uttered
Zeus is a point particle
Of infinite energy, infinite mass
Until his will's widthless line
Of lightning defines direction
And Aphrodite slides out of him,
Flat as her shield, endless as π…
From her, then, ingenuity
Unfolds like a bronze rose
Whose petals razor the hand
