A/N: Written for Imperatives week of my Poetry Foundations class.



Open your eyes!

roll them up into your lashes

and see

what i see


Orion and Ursa recline into the Black

they're probably exploded now

proving Life after Death


Luna queen of the sky

—faces the ground

tickling the clouds with

murmured answers to prayers


Close your eyes…

roll them back into your galaxy

refuse gravity dip a toe into the moon

and see

the Universe
