Gravity

 

Just like both

the ant and the elephant

go sleepy

on a full stomach


Just like the T Rex

carries the peril of collapsing

on its own legs

any moment


Imploding in the brilliance

of that last dazzle

just like the red giant

becomes a black hole


All of us are lead-heavy somewhere within

light like helium in general.
