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.
