A Little Like Jupiter

from bright smile black eyes by Adrian Morse



the needle hit e just as I kissed you
I might have missed you
so we’re not coming up roses
but now I suppose it is

just another matter of time
secret, succinct, and sublime

she saves the shards of my looking glass heart
so when we part it's seven years
of terror and twilight and tears
and all this stuff just sticks with me

miami, maryland
portland, new york, rhode island
so my dear, just where, oh where
in space and time, do we begin?

do you know what it's like
to lie beneath a starry night?
do you know what it’s like to come together
and make your own light?

this thing is fusing hydrogen
the heat, it gathers on our skin
so my dear, just where, oh where
in space and time do we begin?
