A poem about space :)

Holy Cosmos

by rubytwoshoes00

We’ve been told space is like two dark lips colliding

like science fiction it outlines a small cosmos

where fear hides in a glow

where negative space becomes a place

for wishing a constellation of hazy tunes

of faint sharp vowels

a glossary of meteors

a telescope to god

a cold bright white

maybe distance damages us

maybe Jupiter will suddenly surprise us

with a notion of holiness.

But instead an old planet takes over all the space

and we are reminded of the traces of fire

in our gaze defining our infidelities.
