recognizing only a splinter

recognizing only a splinter
of a fragment of how
the observable
universe works, i am stuck
wondering if somewhere,
in the constellation
hydra
, someone has
looked out her window
for the last time, a witness
to the collision, ouroboros

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

for every sunset,

during the Perseids,

during the Perseids,
my heart wanders back to
January 2012,
predawn, unreasonably
cold, cutting
our teeth on the
Quandrantids,
and how
crisp every wish
sounded, riding
to the airport, caught
between staying
and leaving,
and disregarding
these astronomical
hints to impact events

outside our solar

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

no other month

no other month
inhabits itself like
april – the art of
uncertainty sprouts

gleaming from every
naked branch, each
minute embraces
sunlight, bewitched,
and a blossom is
a star, rising
