Star Burst

A billion years ago
I must've swallowed a star
just a tiny one
with pointy edges
occasionally prickly

but also 
a lucky birth light
carrying and carried
all this time -

presumed eternal.

Last night it burst -
all the shards of it
pressing into 
the extremes
of my torso

sputtering and flickering 
the painful throes
slicing up my sleep
sparklers
made of knife blades

celebrating fear
