The Thing I Should Have Liked to Ask Stephen Hawking

This was on the tip of my tongue:
Has he never considered the poets, how they –
with their insistence that we've no less days
to sing God's praise than when we'd first begun –
blithely dropped the hammer of infinity,
making every star, every vacuum collapsed
between the twinkles suddenly appear
an arithmetic nail head of forever?
Yes. This. And the bit about ice cream.
