Earth Moon

ANYONE
ANYWHERE
that doesn’t gasp at the wind of your eyes or bend to the lilt of your crooked mind
is not equipped to grace your orbit

 

All the anyones who cut & salted you

All the anyones who claimed to be poets without singing your curve

All the anyones who don’t look twice at your electric poise & your stoned triumphant smile & the trail of hearts you have soothed with your gravitational love

 

All these anyones are condemned to exist in a world that tilts (to a precise degree) away from your radiance — at an angle where the absence of you will cool them to a temperature uninhabitable —

 

& though I am just a lit match, fated to flare & fade in human-time, I wanted to add my voice to the chorus of stars that continue to sing in your honor, little bean queen.  Earth moon.
