Time has no zero

by Kristine Joy

Ten to the negative thirty-three seconds after the big bang science
              says time began
before, divorced from time space rebounded as quantum foam
              (spacetime's damp dream yet to come)
at ten to the negative thirty-five seconds we had an orange-size
              universe (what sound a subtle scraping hardly music of the spheres)

you said time doesn't pass it simply is and
I am moving (no longer too much more than one)

Veil of unknowing separate by thin sheets of skin
time began
              with this touch and I cry for by recognition it vanishes
              and I know Planck's Wall
