Pills spill from Abel’s overfilled hand.

Twinkling stars outside his window catch his eye.

Competing galaxies fought for space.

Inside one grew a special star

that developed a special blue planet just right for life.

What are the odds?

Big Bang.

Milky Way.





His parents.

One sperm and one egg merging.

Abel’s little life is a confluence of improbable probabilities.

Isn’t that a miracle?

Abel drops the pills;

who is he to end the odds?
