A Proclamation

Last night
The heavens held me.

I embraced them
As countless times before.

Again tonight
They've absorbed me -
Have forced me
To write these words:

' Cosmos,
Take one millionth
Of a second.
Silence
Your incessant hummmmmmmmmm. '

' Listen to me. '

' I love you! '

' Did you hear that? '

“ Know it! ”
