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


ethereal

.

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
