She Said

 

She said to me 
yesterday
that the whole world
was sitting in the palm 
of my hand.

I told her
the Earth 
was far too heavy
for me to hold;
that I would drop 
the world 
to the floor
if it sat in my palm.

And she said nothing,
pressing her fingers on mine,
and curling them 
around the globe.

"Maybe this world
holds more than 
you know"
