lost focus

I remember that the rocks glimmer in the sun
and I want to tip toe up and out.

I remember that the sky looks like a dome
and I think I am stuck in a low tragedy
like wasting a patient’s time

And then I remember I don’t know how far
the space goes anyway

But I forgot the names of the atmospheres
separating the rest of the asteroids from us.

And then I remember the sparkling rocks
and how I want to be outside too.

But
who says we are even separate from the space rocks?
