Starring down her nose Through a microscope

Measured

Starring down her nose

Through a microscope

Surface flaws are clearly perceived

Record it, report it

Every single one.

Does she tire from her observations?

Does she wear from decisions made?

Her hands are busy and full

Clenched with her tools:

A ruler extending to the sun,

A balance weighted with the gallons of the sea

My heart is almost as heavy

Yet drowns in them

And halfway there I melt before the heat.
