Beautiful Things I Have Created

but, really, i have created no beautiful things.
The man you see here isn’t something i made.
The forest, with its paper stars, is not my doing.

i only see these beautiful things, with eyes that are neither my mother’s, nor my father’s,

pupils wide

trying to take in


                                                      trying not

                                                              to blink
