[the sky is infested with stars]

the sky is infested with stars. they wink at me
as i walk beneath them towards your house,
and the shadows recede like the tide. i reach
your house, spill in through the doorway. i gladly
accept this dream you have breathed into my
ear, between my lips, beneath the neck of
my shirt. i siphon some of your light and feel
warm. the fireflies from your mouth sweep up
my hair, tickle the skin of my back. we open
our mouths and the firmament spills out,
figures of earth against a backdrop of night.
