Big and small

 

Like mosquitoes hum at the ears
And the wings take small sounds
Adding up to a big focus at night

Our birth is a small thing caught
With a star in embroidered cloth
And death crowing on a rooftop.

Our death adds up to a big hour
In a wide vast sky above our roof
And sun makes its small sounds.
