There’s a Universe in Your Right Eye

by P

There’s universe in your right eye only.

Beyond it,

I’m afraid your skull might hold forever.

And that perhaps you’ll decide

not to let me have it.

The whole point being

to claim some everything,

and to think I’ve glimpsed it,

real as dust,

in the deepest reach of your face.

You think I don’t know,
but I’m sure —

sometimes you wink

just to threaten oblivion.
