if we could make our homes in the hearts of stars

spwm 2k17: because one can never have too many space references in your poetry. 

what’s the use of seeking out Polaris

that which burns fast and furious

that which bleeds light into the hearts of

hopeful voyagers, lost wanderers;

it is not my home


if I could make my home in the galaxy’s cradle

i would etch out an orbit around a small star (my star)

that which burns slow and steady, a sustained sigh

just so i may never land
