two pairs of sneakers and a sprinkle of stars

i’ll trace maps in your skin

during sleep-soaked

purple nights

plotting out the paths of

all the places

we’ll go adventuring


while you look at me

and tell me you see the

stars under my eyelashes

bright and clear enough

to show us the way



so with our starry eyes and our map-inked skin

we’ll disappear together

into forever.
