They say that life may have come to the Earth
on a meteor kicked up from the Martian plains
by some asteroid gone astray,

or it might be the byproduct of star factories,
churning out chiral molecules in interstellar space,
to seed far flung worlds.

And who among us lay rightful claim here,
if only the rocks are indigenous?

And is this why my ancestors believed
that we all return to the stars
to dance in the sky at the end of life?
