It was all new back then,
just the heavens and me,
and of course
the Void

I was getting ready to sink the valleys,
when Everest – who mistakenly must have thought I was trying to hit on her – said
But you’re old enough to be my Mother!

and I said
I am
Earth
I am
your Mother,
now come here and give Mommy
a kiss
