teach me to love the galaxies

I have already loved the stars-

I have touched and traced the

constellations bare burning

through the hours-

steady fire desired my body whole-

I ran away upon the bars

on shuddering case

your chest- a pleasing flower-

before I could love the uneven mars

liberating and boundless-

I dared to glare your eyes ardent

no arrow would know my heart-

though such a cruel word-longing-

As if I could ever begone- learn you-

among your seducing lies, inevitably

slackened hands known to me-

And only me-

condemned fireflies as they fled

        {[words that exist after all]}
