Shadow Puppets

One star above all other stars

though no higher nor lower the other stars.

The sun loves this earth

cause it is closer than all other stars.

We worship this intimacy in picnics and bikinis

and kisses at sunset

till night gives light to a universe of celestial bodies mingling among the heavens.

Still, the sun haunts us in her absence

as shadows dance macabre dreams

that will seem so serene in the morning.
