a deep that threatens to crumble within

we are but icebergs in the sea

giant frozen stars in the universe

crystals. light. crunch. freeze.

melt. heart. pump. freeze.

the fabric of the universe ripples in silent empathy,

saying, “me too.”

the oceans mirror in their wake

our eyes sweep the universe collecting stars in our pockets for a rainy day.

light. crunch. freeze.

they crackle in our plastic ponchos wishing for the comfort of giant knit mittens.

crinkled-lined-paper stars. embers. sun.

light… crunch… freeze.
