The Museum of Lost Sheep

by Anna Ruiz

under the snow globe of destiny
a human child plays
with the rings of Saturn
on her dinner plate

she conjures up the sun
every morning for ten thousand years
and defends the moon
in its lake of dreams

shaking theology and philosophy
from her head
she breaks the speed of light
with insight
she spreads her amusement
and the universe echoes her laugh
