Speaking to the Stars



On the brightest
Of moonlit nights
While every other lost soul
Sleeps like a stone slab,
Hands folded across chest
Like the death grasp
Of a concrete pigeon,
I keep company with the stars.
I imagine each one
Dancing across the lifeboat
Of an aurora cloud,
Ghostly specters
Who gather my sins and secrets
In their slick-backed pockets,
The whites of their pointed heads
Connecting sacred, ancient holograms
That glow like spirit orbs,
Silently dripping into the atmosphere
All the words yet unwritten.
And stupified of the grandiosity,
I catch them with the ‘awe’
Of my open mouth.
