Star Babies

All those beautiful pinholes in the ceiling,
tiny pricks of light leaking
into a darkened world.
A thousand light years away
could not keep them from burning
roundness in our vision.
A deity’s million jewels revolving
and reveling in their adornment
on a deep blue mantel–
brighter than eyes spying on
the offspring below,
worlds in tow.
