Every Song Ever Sung

The girl turns two dials
in a series of movements
certain that
the right alignment
will fill a space inside her
with all the music ever written
with every song
ever sung.

This may seem
an improbable task,
but consider that each day
the sun rises and sets,
while stars have died
so far away, it will take years
before we notice that
their light has gone.

Marconi thought it
conceivable to open
a space in time
so vast he could capture
Jesus’s sermon on the mount.
Where is the harm in believing
anything is possible with
the right coordinates?
