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



, 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



e s t r e l l a

makes up for it

(she’s pretty, right?

isn’t that



it won’t be.


it never is.


you can’t reject 

the moon-


what happens 

when daylight gets
