Size / / /

There is no such thing as distance—

only size matters.

What looks small in the distance—

is small.

There is no distance.

You left but didn't move away—

I grew larger.

I see all of you now as you dwindle.

I grow and grow,

soon I'll ignite.

Then I'll stand behind the sun

and make it cast a shadow.
