To A Friend Who Questioned If Her Opinion Matters
by Ben  Klayer

There are 10 billion million million stars in the universe
and you are worth every single one of them.
Supernovas fade before your radiance.
Planets orbit around your opinion
and swallow it like a black hole,
then explode like the Big Bang.
Galaxies are contained inside your brain.
Go, explore outer space.

That night, underneath a crescent moon,
you spilled your biggest fear to me
like a shattered wine glass.
You felt like the smallest person,
an uncounted star,
an atom.

I wanted to tell you
that an atom is the basis of all life.
But I didn?t.
I stayed silent and studied constellations.

Now, I?m ready.
You are a shooting star.
Make a wish.
Let your thoughts, your galaxies
stretch across the night sky.

You questioned if your opinion matters.
Answer this:
what is matter to an atom?
especially when you are a universe...
