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.
