Devour the Peach – in answer to T.S. Eliot’s J. Alfred Prufrock

The universe is infinite.
And I am but a speck. 
So if I tip the scales a bit
is there some balance I'll upset? 

Or is it possible perhaps
that if you gave me half a chance
I’d disrupt the status quo 
and challenge what you think you know? 

And if you opened up your mind.
Might it be that you would find
the universe is ever changing
now and always rearranging. 

Becoming new and shedding old. 
In a state of constant growth. 
So come on, join me
if you dare- 
together let’s ascend those stairs. 

Disturb, disrupt, extend our reach. 
And for dessert devour that peach.

    1. Thank you Caitlin. I made a couple of changes, which I thought were more harmonious when read aloud. And I think the change I made in the last line made it a stronger statement, which I carried into my new title. Let me know your thoughts on my “improvements.” I appreciate your comment.
