the spin of the cosmos

the humming cosmos
calls out
in the nighttime

though all the house
is sleeping
I creep by every door
into the darkness
of the outside

earthen dance floor
take your partner
for a star-lit waltz
across the milky sky


I fill my ears
with the sound of stars singing
with the moon
and with the awe

I spin around
then return
to bed
