I live in a snow globe.
A little lamp shines in on me.

I talk to the lamp,
maybe it’s lonely. A door

opens. My brain
is full of water, but I am

not alone.
Johnni, Adrian and Oliver are here.

Johnni says,
Look out, everyone!

It’s a blizzard.
Oliver counts five pieces

of snow on his nose and Adrian jumps
like glitter. Everyone stares

for a second.
Then, their lungs remember

to breathe
