Premature Beauty

the stars are gathering into one constellation:
the moon, not even bestowing this,
screams "No more Juliets!"

reality is immortal

the soul wounded the ego, consumed my heart
because I own a body,
made of shame

seizing a memory
asking for a favor,
a miracle

any miracle
any silence

the stars turn subjects
into ideas
