What Makes Stars Romantic
|Hear me read the poem:
As a .wav file
As an MP3 file
|What makes stars romantic? Is it the beauty
Of a night sky dark lit with diamonds?
Or the wilderness of blue-white witnesses
Staring wordless back across the abyss?
Or the fascination of forever? (For love
Is a fragment of forever lodged in the heart.)
Is it the need for two when one seems so small?
Or is it the passion at a star's heart?
