Universe

Kimberley Goffe

She looks up
and is surprised to find stars
like salt on a plate,
as if she could stick
a finger
into the sky
then lick the star
off her fingernail,
run her tongue over her teeth
to clean them of residual
cosmic matter.

The moon was stuck
between her molars
and despite
her gum ball training,
she almost choked
on the sun.
