Four Poems, Rose Knapp


Rapid cloudbursts of reiterating recursive 
Atonal frequencies flutter in the flux 
Giving the impression of being tremulous 

Planetary Exploration 

What will happen once we colonize 
Other worlds? The universe is possibly infinite

Will Earth lose its centrality in human
Culture, or will it be a longed for homeworld?

Outside Time

What would it mean to exist outside of time? 
Is it possible in the future through technological progress?

Do the dead exist for eternity, outside of 
Time, or is it a myth our species tells itself Because it’s cathartic?


What if this supposedly moral God who created this 
Fallen world was inherently evil and malevolent?
The dualistic view that this world cannot be saved
