<p style="text-align: left;">teach me how to love the galaxies</p>
<p style="text-align: left;">I have already loved the stars-</p>
<p style="text-align: left;">I have touched and traced the</p>
<p style="text-align: left;">constellations bare burning</p>
<p style="text-align: left;">through the hours-</p>
<p style="text-align: left;">steady fire desired my body whole-</p>
<p style="text-align: left;">I ran away upon the bars</p>
<p style="text-align: left;">on shuddering case</p>
<p style="text-align: left;">your chest- a pleasing flower-</p>
<p style="text-align: left;">before I could love the uneven mars</p>
<p style="text-align: left;">liberating and boundless-</p>
<p style="text-align: left;">I dared to glare your eyes ardent</p>
<p style="text-align: left;">no arrow would know my heart-</p>
<p style="text-align: left;">though such a cruel word-longing-</p>
<p style="text-align: left;">As if I could ever begone- learn you-</p>
<p style="text-align: left;">among your seducing lies, inevitably</p>
<p style="text-align: left;">slackened hands known to me-</p>
<p style="text-align: left;">And only me-</p>
<p style="text-align: left;">condemned fireflies as they fled</p>
