The Crab Nebula

by Luminita Suse

The world I know
is nothing but a mere blink
in the crab's eye
looking up to the thirsty sky,

just an instant glow
of the cosmic ink
writing the next verse
for this universe,

or a work of art,
time playing drums and fife
in a pulsar's heart
at the fulcrum of my life.
