Large Stars Looking Small

By Connie Frazer

Gasp with shock, you spaced-out

wide bright twinklers. Soon

there will be more of us than

you. Yet consider the power

of small things together

— as trillions of fleas

in a house kept out the police.

Note how it needs displaced sand

to make the big footstep.

And who can stand

under the raindrop

become the water drip, the white

torrent nothing resists

when the dam bursts.
