"Chocolate Glazed Donut", oil, by Heidi Malott
Sitting still is something
most things never do.
Even a donut on a plate
does miracles inside itself,
all the electrons and things
speeding here and there
in the sugary spaces.
The silent stars are never still
as they circulate through their kingdoms
in the countries above us,
and far from all the stars,
the thoughts we think
throw up their hands in eagerness,
second by second by second.
