On paper and in person she was as small as a mouse
and still she tried to make herself smaller
She wished to shrink to a speck of stardust
but also imbued with powers contained
in the nascent universe inside her
One day she went into her mind
and did not come back out again
Instead she became stardust.
Her dream of becoming a speck came true
But that was not the end of her story…..
She became a seed planted in a new place
and all that there was left to do
was to expand.
She sang the body electric
She became the stars
and her own new multiverse under her own terms
Like shrapnel exploding
she exploded into the biggest planet
anyone had ever seen
Her power was compassion
and no one could ever make her feel small again
We are all made of stars.
