The man walked for forever
and when that was over
and the clocks had stopped
he walked in the timelessness
the gap between universes
until he came to a new one
and at the end of that long journey
past the fogs, the blizzards, the summer heat
the creatures there embraced him
they brought him to their homes
they gave him food and new clothes
the told him to tell of his travels
to speak all the secrets of Time’s End
and the Beginning Again
and when the story was done
the people knelt down
and named him God
for his name was so old
that no one could pronounce it
in their galaxies tongue.
