Thor, the Norse God of Thunder, had a hammer named Mjölnir. Mjölnir was considered a fierce weapon that could level mountains and summon lightning with every blow. In this poetry blog, every Thursday, (Thor’s Day), Mjölnir will forge only song - sing of the mysteries and beauties of the world.

belly against the glass

little blonde girl gazing into a coffee shop food case—
adorned in a pink-patterned shirt with cherries,
pink-hearted pants, purple rubber sandals,
and a strawberry Band-Aid on the hand
that now follows the curve of the case.
she lifts her shirt up and presses
the bulge of her belly
against the frosted glass
and begins to hum.
