There is a droplet of the universe
descending from the heavens—
A clear, luminescent bulb
of an electric orb—
I see its colors,
spreading out like veins
as it pulsates—
An image in my mind
of a cell
with infinite dendrites
all connected together,
all interconnected together—
the variegate web—
I see it coming
to stroke my cheek—
the sweet shocking clip of a raindrop
on the jowl
it touches
and then is gone—
But I can’t stop thinking
about the fantasy
of it becoming me
