Neptune's Lullaby

More by this author

She is the queen of the universe,
thousands of lightyears away,
distant like the sun,
and cold
like saturn’s rings.
She’s empty,
and
her pupils are small,
like pluto,
but sharp enough to pierce the very surface of the moon.
she’s frigid
like Neptune,
yet she can scald your spirit like she’s mercury.
She’s got the Earth wrapped around her pinky,
all the planets revolve around her—
only her.
The sun’s solar flares lap at her soul in wonder,
captivated by her ability to keep everything so small
so in balance.
