of ourselves on display.
We like facts and specifics and
we hang x-rays on the walls.
I could probably fit the nearby stars inside our
bedside cabinet and shove the moon in the bath
for safe-keeping somehow -
but as I squint into the distance I’m not sure
what to do with all of that black, non-empty space.
I can’t possibly explore it all.
It makes me sort of nervous
and I guess that that’s ok.
