I Can See Dead Celestial Bodies Naked

Stars are like ghosts

who don’t even know

they’re dead

as they shine through the night

haunting the sleeping with light

by pretending still to be alive

needing to illuminate

these dying embers

with a flicker of the eyes

an exhale of hot wind

resurrects original sin

even before the first bite

that spark

that sets them all

alight

are the words of dead poets who

will will the living

to make their peace with death

as their verses can kill curses

who can know

when the moon can eclipse the sun

or a streetlight can outglow

even a UFO.
