Answers out of the sky

They found two new planets last week
mild as Washington in May
and older than us by a few billion years
all of which makes me quiet
and exhilarated at the same time

not that I think we are owed another colony
a landing pad for our waste

or even a fresh start
because I am not ready
to swallow the end
to our beginning

I just want to know
if they have wrestled answers
out of the sky

have they sorted out death
is tofu good or bad
should I let my son binge
on progress

and they say we will never know
because they are too many light years away
but I can’t help the gaping wonder

did they grow up rational
or raw.
