Fizzy Star Box by Lorraine Schein
Fizzy Star Box
I kept my star
In a fizzy star box
So it wouldn’t shoot off
Mother astronomy, take me beyond
Like the children running the magic shop,
We live in the occult, not always knowing how
The trick is done.
Nice storm, thanks for the reminder
Don’t steal my fizzy star box, physicist.
