THERE HAS NEVER BEEN A TIME WHEN U WERE NOT BATHED IN STARLIGHT

 

 

there has never been a time when u were not bathed in starlight, because
hello
the sun is a star
and also you are made of stars.

even alone in ur bed,
watching gilmore girls,
starlight everywhere.

 

THE TATTOOS WE GAVE EACH OTHER

 

we wrote our love
with safety pins, drew
crooked constellations at
each other’s edges.

ursa major might outlive
men and languages yet
starlight ages
with whatever word we cage it in.

there are as many words for stars as stars,
as many words for love as words, just
temporary forms
for something nebulous.

there will always be more mouth to name the stars i left
dangling from your ribs.
