On a celestial USB
the universe existed.
"I only saved this part" said God
"The glitch where the software got twisted
100 years or so of Time
rewind, replay, repeat
until I can put a finger on
while those within the program
live lives again and again
not sensing re-experiencing
love and loss and pain
They'll never know" God finishes
while unplugging the stick from the drive
"Too busy living for themselves
to know how to be alive."
