Purpose

meaning,
definition,
utility,
function,
I don’t get it

What’s to understand?
The celery and marshmallow of words.
zero, nothing,
something.

Riddle me this,
If I ceased to exist,
would that alter universal operations
and the physics of matter,
if that even matters.

Would my void feed the insatiability
of every black hole,
of each burning star
thus near and far

or will my current body become
future fossil fuel for distant intelligence
While I lie in an eternal numb,
floating, providing
energy.
Perpetual mitochondrion.

Fulfilling my design
as it was intended for Earth,
for life,
for  birth,
the unforeseeable.
