I swallowed the sun and moon.
Digested them overnight
And replaced them the following day.
No one noticed as it was
Particularly overcast, and I have
Sufficient energy to hold down
So when the world bowls over
The pins of starlight, I am the patterns
On its face, and your place upon it
And when evening comes
Again, and you look for inspiration,
I will be there as well to render
And you who live around
The corners of Earth’s surface need
Fear no more from neglect,
As on all sides I rise to greet you
On your way through the future,
And will ensure you’re saluted
Day and night.
