"come and see," he said
and opened his mouth wide
to reveal the universe's vastness.

and she saw the simultaneous
blush and pallor of worlds --
birth and death --
contained neatly in the charioteer.

"come and see,"
he said
and beckoned her.

and she took the opportunity
and climbed into the mouth that fed her

one with the starry universe

and swam in the embryonic dust
of her unborn self.
