Little scarlet star
Pulsating with the harmony of a heart
Perhaps that's what you are
The vital organ of the universe
With which planets, like blood,
Flow through the curious fingertips
Of the cosmos.

I'd like to think so, anyhow
That you, a single sparkle
Can split apart the galaxies
With an ominous quiver.
And if your pulse –
The smallest quake,
Could swap the sun and the moon
Or shatter asteroids
With a lone glimmer
I'd set your throne above my world
And color our dream.

If only, little star, I could believe.
