Listen. I say.

For far too long I wanted

to be among the stars

when they showered.

To be gossamer.

I try to convince them.

Listen. Andromeda.

Stars are stars and I am

of them and more.

Feel my divinity, my

velvet. Be apart of

my reach’s finds. Allow

me to swathe you in shade.

Go to rest, I say.
