the world as they know it

reflections bounce off anything they
can get their hands on
such as inner-city skyscrapers or
twenty-story tall christmas trees
leading you to believe they could be
just about anything
like below-the-radar superheroes or
earthbound souls in search of love

a windy night pushes a fuzzy moon
out into the open
all the little sleepwalkers looking skyward
pointing past the stars
their eyes and mouths wide open

they’ve not seen anything like this before
the ancient dome dropping upon them
they reach out in acceptance
as if trying to catch a baby
falling from a burning building
the world as they know it
collapsing upon them

july two thousand eighteen
