Small Things

Take the small things.

Little sips of poison

can kill a man.

Tiny little bullets

can make your head explode.

Three little words

can rescue you:

“Wanna get high?”

A song on the radio.

The way you cook breakfast

in your underwear.

A pocket bible.

A photograph of 1968

gathers dust

on a bookshelf.

Small things

comprise the universe.

Small things.

A kitten.

A diamond.

Small things.

An apple.

A golf ball.

A remote control

that turns off the sun.
