I used to go through life quite flat-footed. Back
then, the sidewalk would stick to my heels,
but I’ve grown up quite a bit, touching the stars
way up here. Far below there’s Earth, still kicking.
My body? It’s being nebulous and probably
stretching all over the Milky Way right now.
My heart is somewhere in the middle, and it’s
awfully wide. In fact, there’s a huge gap in my
chest and I’m breathing the Universe in and out
night and day. A black hole is all that I really am,
and I’ve dropped all contact with matter for sure,
but hey, I’m enjoying my space here immensely.
