I stare at the sun
instead of watching where I’m going
I watch the light of my dreams
so bright that I’m blind as the night

twinkle twinkle
I see so clearly
every orbit
but never the satellite that blindsides me

So I wink back at every flirty star
I whisper their names
the ones they gave each other
before eternity made her plans

I wonder where my feet are
or where they will be tomorrow
when I dance behind my door
or in front of yours

in the morning I taste the grass
and Earth in my bruised teeth
I stubbed my toe on the moon again
should have watched where I was going
