SMALL BLAZE

    Asterisk—little star—superscript
    implies:
    look below from its lofty perch
    beside the word’s letter cliff
    precarious before the page’s margin chasm
    or jungling fall through ink to
    a sublunary or infernal region
    where lies its lower twin, lording over
    diminutive denizens swarming in
    the morass below

    Then back—ascend—to the favored
    field, edified by your guiding light
    that plummeted us into the detailed depth
    from which we might arise, to higher
    heights than we had known
    before meeting your pharos fire in
    that crowded firmament of the page proper
    where there’s always space  space
    for even more blaze
