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

on the nth day of

on the nth day of
summer, we made a few
more discoveries,
hand in hand, arms
swinging towards
home, luck in our
steps. a new
Hedera helix hanging
planter finds its rhythm
alongside us, ready
to climb towards
the stars at our window

the day after, all

the day after, all
signs continue to point to
each other – we are

over the moon, tiptoeing
our happiness around stars

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

with only a hundred
billion neurons
meeting and
unmeeting within
each galaxy of one
individual, we profess
to knowing where
we are going
when we take
one another’s hand

out of courtesy,

out of courtesy,
we are one another’s textbook
spiral galaxies,

lit with intrinsic structure,
not wholly predictable

outside our solar

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

the heart often

the heart often
lingers dutifully
in orbit,
breaks off
pieces of
memory when
hungry, stays
close to avoid
missing
any shooting stars
