Groundbreaking

starsSomeone once told me
that late evening conversations
about stars are pathetic,
that people use them as a crutch
pointing blindly at their useless light.

We can change the subject,
if you ever want to know what I mean.
The future is what I’m talking about
spread like jam across your sticky fingers
spread like stars against a mud-black sky.

  1. I feel ever so sad for whomever told that to you
    That is someone who is never here
