with my
eyes like candles
seeing through the clot of mascara and
dark, i can see through it
but i can't see through you,
as you teach the torches to burn bright,
like a star, another planet's sun,
what are your motives?
enormous light, i want to navigate by you,
not the north star, you're
sirius, bigger and brighter and
everything, if only you would
shine so bright for
me,
too.
