Inside the Small

An original event: a star
blazed up inside

the quiet, nerve-less
dark; the strange instance

"touch" amazed the skin.

The startled, pleasured
bird: air's blood

in its nostril; a sapling
shivering slightly in freezing

winter winds.

I am here, lifting "heart"
from its body's dust;

a light blazed up
inside the small, dark
