Pills spill from Abel’s overfilled hand.
Twinkling stars outside his window catch his eye.
14 billion years ago everything exploded from nothing.
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?
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?
