space-scape

to fall out of the moon
is to devour earth

to fall out and never be broken,
all limbs on board, no rain
of human debris, nothing
traced through air

stars fly in a shower of sparks
stars like fireworks
stars like my heart, amassing love
to the brink of collapse

up here, i’m remote,
incandescent
nothing can hurt me

i am white-hot; i am
a fixed point of endless light,
constant as death, swimming
in a sea of darkness
