Before You Were Born

Before you were born,
you were the watcher
of countless galaxies
spinning inside you.
Then you asked
The Great Question:
What would it be like
to live on one of those
infinitesimal worlds?
And here you are, little one,
here you are, crying for milk!
Yet all the possible stars
are less than a droplet of fire
in the fallen blue bowl
of your gaze.
