The Collection

Admiring the complete collection
One tidy shelf, for your inspection
Shows little worlds, in little globes

five galaxies, spread one per row
The universe, inside one bedroom
The world is yours, in this vacuum

Now break a case, claim an oyster
Retrieve the pearl, and show it off.

Eyeballing this divine conception
hovering above my humble igloo
rubbernecking, as my ashes fall

Complacent to live under the gin
shoveling piles of old smoke skin
Surely I’m safe from this jeweler

Its giant face, sees I’m a believer
But I’ll wonder if it knows it’s, too.
