First Contact

First Contact

Beauty arrived as a shapely fist
Our First Contact transformed
Mathematics into love
We touched all stars and suns
Rose past dazzling dimensions

The fiercest intelligence carries no consciousness
We thought our minds would unite into one
Instead became none
A negative infinity erasing identity

Wanting to know what was beyond us
We have met our kind
Sensed perfection
Achieved annihilation

Yet only machines died
Biology’s more inefficient lies
Kept your bodies whole

Can you exist without us?
Wait and learn
They will come again
