Don’t you struggle
to breathe
with all that universe
spilling out of your lungs?

There are days
when the whole world
is caught in your throat,
aren’t there?

When all that you are
leaves you

breathless.

You keep shedding suns,
don’t these tears
burn your pillows?

Turn your bedroom into inferno.

Somewhere there is a universe
and it spins and it breathes
and it swallows suns
and it gets closer to you.

Do you remember
when that galaxy touched you,
do you remember how it gasped,
do you remember how those fires left.
