A hail of sun spots
spews photons for new life
pinholes appear
persist to reveal gaping
stars inverted ex utero

at its birth
we tickle the sole of the universe

it responds
with less than a perfect Apgar score

but we grade on a curve
so consider this creation
inspected and officially
suitable for life

(please leave the envelope
under the big blue rock)
