remember the night we drove out
into the inked darkness
until the hum of
the city evaporated into contrails streaked
above us like some Chagall canvas
that night I looked up at the sky
and its infinite display and I said
“doesn't it make you feel better to know
you're made of stardust?”
you laughed quietly and replied,
“you'd rather be up
there, wouldn't you?” and
I think that's when you first
knew I would always be tripping over
things because the ground didn't
interest me in the slightest
