There was a woman I would see almost every day while picking up my son from preschool. She wore the same earrings every day – a simple hammered wire elongated hoop. Her earrings are common, familiar, and very much an everyday earring. I took that hoop and multiplied it.
A simple hammered wire earring multiplied
hammered with energy, my energy.
thinking of the energy in stars
the energy of fission
exploding in all directions.
The everyday earring explodes
not so everyday anymore.
