Poem: estrella

 

e s t r e l l a 

 

what does it feel like

to be alone?

 

sometimes i glance up at

the night sky and

wonder if any star

is as isolated as 

i am.

 

/ miles have a way

of growing farther

the closer 

two things are /

 

so i orbit

 

arounD and

arounD

 

, a sunshine

contrived from

microplastics and

nuclear waste ,

 

/ where is

the moon? / 

 

night never comes

because daylight is

so extroverted that

it makes moon feel

unwelcome

 

e s t r e l l a

makes up for it

(she’s pretty, right?

isn’t that

enough?)

 

it won’t be.

 

it never is.

 

you can’t reject 

the moon-

 

what happens 

when daylight gets

tired?
