G R A V I T Y



the earth became one
without us.
there is new life growing
in the darkness,
and no room left for humans.

now, falling
through the clouds
toward the world
where my grandparents were born,
i realize for the first time
that the earth is hollow -

like a shell,
fragile.
i can tap on the inside
and the whole thing will shatter.

my finger is on the trigger.

at last,
mother,
i am coming home
to be born.
