Reflection

What is a poet
but an assessment
of her love stories?

Love.
A vast understatement
loaded with careless imprecision

(I am constantly amazed
by the human impulse
to suffocate the world with labels)

And so the ultimate test
for a writer is
to explain the unexplainable

For instance–
the galaxies behind your eyes
that are riddled with constellations;
my self-consuming need
to explore that universe
