Ignorance | Poem

 
 

Ignorance


I spin again and again
Like a top.
I swallow the earth
As I grow,
I overcome our galaxy
To become infinite.
I peek in the universe
For an angel,
I am boundlessly alone
And I pray.
A comet strikes me
In the head,
Then I explode noisily,
Like a ballon.
Now I can leave your house
For a while,
Because I have a cure
For my giantess.
- Mirel Brisca
