may the smallest craft plot its way here
With tweezers I mount postage stamps
in enormous matted frames, nail
bright walls to their backs in order
to build a house. It took forever
to assemble my own grandfather
clock. The staircase only seconds.
When I finish I stand in my large window
and feel decidedly small.
sometimes I imagine myself helen keller
I've found a
universe in here,
there is more than one
sun. O Lord,
every time you touch me
you teach me something new.
