Blue

before this, you were elsewhere…
in parentheses, in another constellation
drifting along

incandescent star strands
stretched through infinity like
fingers. then you reached to

clasp the moon. you cradled it
in cupped palms, smoothed
craters, eroded lines. rendered

it’s heart unfettered
by the insolent swagger of time.
you were not born;

your sprang whole and perfect from
the blue. a soundless meteor,
a spark, a sparkle.

today, you’ve come again…flew
even as you fell. another
lifetime has passed, and

I am galvanized by your unreal
reality…my sky-eyed nomad,
my most desired constellation.
