My Sun

Peripherals give me the gift of the sun

the glowing orb millions of miles away
pales not in power or beauty but lacks
cold
the center of the universe--
incapable of rejection

burning thermals enclose me with
bright fingers of embrace
clasping my farenheit with its joules

unavoidable ultraviolets kiss my ceramic melanin
leaving whispers of cracks on my youth
--soft reminders of my naivety
such a companion for life…
to be there when I rise
and glimmer silently through the night
with a lover’s name of
moon.
