And for every time we touched, It felt like New York was still and quiet; And Las Vegas had gone dark; Big Ben down in London stopped ticking;And the flow of Fallingwater seized; Venice stopped sinking, And Rome was resurrected; The Great Wall was breached, And the Colorado flooded the Grand Canyon; The Duomo of Florence crumbled, And Istanbul fell lackluster at the crossroads of worlds; Banks Island was never a fragment, And Siberia wasn’t deathly cold; The Aleutian Islands weren’t so alone, And the life of the Galapagos stormed the Americas; Earth went dark, suspended in silence, And a million billion stars bloomed, Above and in our eyes.
