she fled before light

i am in love
with the girl from the stars


each night
she dangles her legs
off burning helium,
and throws her laugh
into the shimmering sky


her fingers trace grooves
into Ursa’s hide
as she sings to me,
her songs
of creation
and mortality


her hair tangles
into galaxies
as she dances clumsily,
tripping over meteors, and
falling into Orion’s embrace


she blows a honey kiss
over her shoulder,
batting stardust- brushed eyelashes
at me, at us
before retreating into
her nebula


i am in love
with the girl from the stars


a lonely love
