in an otherwise dark sky

on the surface of a pale planet

 she smolders in silence

radiates faintly in rhythm

with the extinguishing stars

intrigued by

their distant declarations

ponders if

super nova’s are superstitious?

or sentimental?

do they


are they


she identifies with

their self destructive twinkle

blows sympathetic kisses

into the atmosphere

launches love letters

 into space

in glow in the dark

mason jars

never to be received

but laced just the same

with meaningful metaphors

and endless curiosities


their freedom to shine

in an otherwise

dark sky
