Starmaker

Starmaker

When everything explodes again
as everything always does
he tries to gather up the fragments,
sweep up the dust, collect even the
almost non-existent memories of
whatever had gone and gone and
gone away before and now had
gone away again.
…………………………………..He does his best
to save whatever might be salvaged;
shines and reshapes even the tiniest
fragments —even the microscopic,
seemingly unimportant particles—
realigns them as best he can and,
always hopeful, tries and tries to
smooth their roughest edges and
glue them together again.
……………………………………………….Finished,
he seeks and finds his shiniest paint,
his most glittery glitter, gathers his
newformed planetoids and galaxies,
rises from his morning’s workbench
and goes out to hang his stars.
