A Wider Universe Than Yesterday

It was the first time I thought,
“There are, now, worlds coming into being”—
created in the time it takes me
to eat a peach.
What immeasurable options knitting the stars.

alleluia, alleluia
in voices too sweet for sound.

may I have a bit of earth?

because I have been practicing—
balancing books on my perfect princess head.
