i was stupid then.
my galaxies were built
with fruit slices cut into star shapes,
smelling sweet like pineapple
and the summer's ripest peach;
origami swans
tucking their heads beneath
a gently folded wing;
spider webs that gleamed
like pieces of a backlit moon.

i was stupid then,
when gravity's strings
were plucked
like golden harps
beneath fingers
of boys who knew nothing of
the kerosene-blue supernovas
exploding in my chest each time their
brown eyes melted like chocolate pudding into mine,

cooling into the black that stained
my aching fingertips
with charcoal and ash.
