  In the scope of the universe

we are mere atoms

insignificant

  In the face of beauty

we are mere onlookers

stupified, eyes wide

  In the presence of genius

we are mere midwives (if we are lucky)

delivering what they conceive

  In the shipyards of myself

I am Titanic moving

headlong into a glacier

sinking insignificant.
