A photon circled Delphi’s head.
Skull encased brain displayed hydrogen’s atomic structure.
Due to its orbital speed
the photon appeared to be a halo.
This caused her gynecologist some reluctance
to give Delphi an exam.
She read an old Scientific American
with legs spread, feet inserted in the stirrups.
Her mind projected images of t-rex on the white walls
along with Mesozoic foliage.
The gynecologist never met the dinosaur’s gaze
afraid it would step off the wall.
The exam room warmed significantly
as a meteor entered the atmosphere igniting.
