my home the universe

walk on the moon
float in space
hold the sun in worship
cover the glare from your eye
have the presence of mind to relax
and take in every star in whole
don’t burn your mind out
trying to recite this constellation
after all, it’s just the same sky
it’s my sea – my lonely ocean
my infinite backyard
no fences keep from neighbouring
Saturn is my tether-ball pole
and Mars is my tire swing
