Expanding universe


Like a universe expanding,
with a dwarf star at its center,
day by day,
my stomach grows.

It would take
6,000 light years to travel
from one end to the other
of this globular cluster.

It is round.
Like soft drops of olive oil,
like a dusty cocoa truffle,
like a snore.

The sun's weight sits on a spoon,
and still I chomp a bowl
of sunflakes, more and more,
such gravity.
