First Draft

Has already been edited. Here is the second.


The moon emerged from her mouth.

She swallowed the universe whole,
chewed on little planets,
pushed aside galaxies with her tongue
till comets came rushing out

Laughing, tumbling over each other
zooming away before they clash
into smoky nothingness.
Little asteroids falling out
burnt the moon’s ground.

Then she felt a black little hole
pulling on her insides
and she fell inwards
melting, dissipating.

Leaving behind a moon, proud.
