Brian May
Brian May
Holding the universe in his hands
He could fold it into nothingness.
He could make a paper aeroplane from it
And cast it to the future.

Watch it float on shaking air,
Buffeted by currents and eddies.
Pushed up in the stratosphere
By columns of thermal fall out.

But all too soon descent begins,
With accompanying screaming,
And it hits its terminus and unsprings
Everything back to existence.

Brian May, British musician, singer and astrophysicist, was born today in 1947.

Benedict Cumberbatch, English actor, was born on this day in 1976.
