The Cup

My fingers, raised and rounded,

are a cup waiting to be filled

with stars, moon, dark January sky.

Outside the window, the night

is a black cape sprinkled with diamonds.

Inside this white room,

I write on yellow paper

holding in my mind

my life, delicate as a china cup

so fine that my fingers show through

as pale blue shadows.
