The universe is a firework display
Exploding, and burning out
In an instant that seems like
An eternity of energy and matter
But never enough time for smiling
Faces lit by sparks of light, laughing
In the face of darkness, oohs and ahhs
Inspiring gasps of breath that breathe
Life into a moment, where dogs bark
At the coming threat and a young boy
Begs Mother for a dollar to buy
A necklace, glowing bright pink light
That expels the darkness.
Until Mother tells him,
Those are for girls
Watch the show.”
Fractal explosions impact him.
Raining fire from the sky, as he imagines
Other universes, where better truths lie,
Where those explosions inside were never
Trapped therein, where he could
Win the war God waged with women
And men, where He could turn back time,
Reverse it and then, put the child He broke
Back together again..
Humpty Dumpty, who built the wall?
Humpty Dumpty, why did you fall?
Humpty Dumpty, I’m wishing you well.
For a better place where
You didn’t break when you fell..
Where all the Queen’s horses and shining
Women could put you together again.
She’d be beautiful, like her mother before,
Filled with words and wisdom
Like weighted water, ready to shape
The world, for a waiting universe
Where her glowing face, laughing
At the darkness, would lead us to salvation.
