#DarkMatter Is Everywhere or Nowhere #space #poetry

Cosmic_Latte

Color of all light in the universe added up to a shade of beige called cosmic latte

It’s everywhere.
It’s nowhere.
It can’t be seen,
But hardly rare.
Gravitational effects
In axes x, y, z;
Dark matter clarifies
Mass discrepancies.
We just don’t know
What it might be,
But it’s embraced
In the community.
It accounts for most
Of what’s not seen,
Or does not exist –
It’s entropy.
Is it gamma rays?
Or dwarf galaxies?
But we can’t see
Any of these.
Can’t rule it out,
Can’t rule it in,
Can’t detect
With germanium.
It won’t absorb,
It won’t emit          .
Hypothesize
But don’t commit.
by Kate Rauner

Dark matter forms over 80% of the universe, or maybe none at all. A real puzzle. Learn more at Wikipedia or NatGeo, “a maddening refrain in the search for the invisible, omnipresent particles.”
