Brighter!

Brighter,

Brighter than narrowed expectations!

You can keep your precious stars,

Your explosive super novas,

Your lightless black hole matter.

They can explode, can coalesce for centuries

As faces permanently crane northward.

Their indulgent stardust is mere glitter

comparative to the art of my own two hands,

too east-bound for high demands.

 

But here’s my timid secret

Too obscured for human eyes turned skyward.

Spoken, only whispered.

It can’t be heard by ears, so stubborn.

I’m stealing your precious, massive stars,

Replacing them with my soul-born shine

A glare so bright it hides my face

As I pluck each star out, light by light

And slowly, slowly, I’ll own this sky

But you’ll be too blind to know it’s mine
