because chaos is

because chaos is
uncountable, we are
asked to refrain from
recognizing multiple
chaoses, grasping
syndemics, even
in an emergency
of our own doing
and undoing

if we escape this,

we come together

we come together
with and without reason, like the
planet, revolving

perhaps you and i
are newly crossing into
our butterfly stage –

when i heard today

when i heard today
that NASA had discovered
a new solar system with seven
earth-like planets, i sighed
thank god as if i were
closer to getting off
this one. other lures:
the system’s star
is an ultracool

named TRAPPIST-1,
no abrahamic relations, and
cosmically speaking,
40 light years away
is only right next door

invaders to the
heart, programmed
with the sticky

it takes so much
discipline to
flourish together

outside our solar

outside our solar
system, somewhere
between star
and planet – an
aurora. inside
our veins, somewhere
between heart
and hand – a
tugging.

and the ice was

and the ice was
iridescent –
encasing
every imperfection

into that winter’s
eve, when love
was equivalent
to constant
motion, and –
true to any planetary
system – we found
ourselves locked
comfortably
into orbit
