Here I am Googling Beyoncé at quarter ’til one
while half a world over someone else wakes up
in the middle of the night to pee and also Googles
Beyoncé on their phone, all proper rites observed,
all things revolving around an orbit of beach-dancing
and eyes many would gladly pluck out to fill the void.
