Is the universe the size of a pinprick in vellum
exquisite in its minuteness though we

can’t tell the difference?
God alone knows

Or is it the dimensions of a magnificent vastness
whose edges continue to extend as soon as

they’re reached?
God alone knows

Or neither or both at the same time
and we may not know which

until we become the size of a pinprick in vellum
or the dimensions of a magnificent vastness

whose edges continue to extend
as soon as they’re reached

God alone knows
