The biggest

How big is big  
when the biggest of the big  
in the whole wide universe  
is but invisible to my eye  
the cesium atom   
the big guy  
we think the biggest  
and to think the entire universe  
has nothing bigger  
with all else   
cobbled together  
atoms upon atoms  
a shoe  
a mountain  
Jupiter  
a galaxy  
bits upon bits  
yet not a bit  
larger than  
the mighty cesium  
measuring in at  
273 trillionths of a meter  
give or take  
an inch or two!
