Small Universe

GodessYou are carrying a universe

 

I can see it glittering,

blazing beyond the foreign violet

tones of your sight

 

I can hear it in

your songs like howling wind,

like something that comes from the sky

 

I can see it as

you spread your arms and jump

a smile dancing on your pale face

 

your serene expression

as you come hurtling down toward the sea

that smashes your skull and fractures your heart

 

You thought your universe was carrying you

but you were carrying it
