Worlds and Wishes

I wish I knew 

The worlds above

That make my mouth drop 

And my mind turn

More than the flames 

of this night’s light. 


I wish I knew

What lies ahead

So I can be in control.

“Leaving Reservation”

It read. 


I wish I knew

The worlds vaster than this place

And could wander those worlds

For longer than I’ve wandered here.


I wish I knew

The stars’ lives

And how they came to be.


I wish I could talk 

To Orion

And ask him if he likes his belt. 


I wish I could throw my axe

Up into the sky

And puncture one of the stars

To create new worlds.

To be in control.

To be just like God.


I’m my own God among these evergreens.

They bow to me under the wind

Just as the fire did.


The starlight sky rises and bows 

To the darkness and light.

Oh how I wish I could be like the Sun!
