stargazing.

When I look at the stars
I look into paradox
where the edges of my skin
dissolve into starlight
and at the same time
I am still so painfully human

It’s like my deep DNA
remembers when I was just an
idea
in the infinite density
of the hour before the dawn

and it longs again
to be part of that
wholeness
quivering with eternity
and possibility.
