A tiny ocean crashes
Beneath the short sky
On a minuscule island, a flake,
Battered by fiddly weather,
Close to the compact continent,
All spread over
The crumb of the world, a mote,
Caught in the stifling closeness
Of a tight solar system,
Twisting in a narrow galaxy,
A low ceiling-ed infinity:
A tiny universe
A tiny tiny universe
