Shiva for the Stars

Moon Man 1

I like the taste of night.
The way it bites all sharp.
Air teasing.
just so,
Go to the desert, sit shivah for the stars.
Like a wake. You know.
Pretend to swallow the moon,
maybe you will become pregnant
and shoot moonbeams from
Who am I to say.

-you sit shivah for the stars a thousand times over and remember their lives even though you were not there to see them, because they are dead a thousand times over yet still shine bright.-
