Astronomical phenomena

The dissonance

Between grasping for something you think you desperately need

Grasping at air

And the knowing and the stillness

And I thought that it was strange that I had never seen it before

You are always pulling at me with your invisible puppet strings

With your eyes

And I went where you called

Because I didn’t know where I belonged so I belonged everywhere

and nowhere

I drew down some marks on the ground

Here and here

And I could calculate the curve of the earth

Lines of past astronomers measuring planetary trajectories

Summer solstices and eclipses

The future projections of our lives

Of the orbits and collisions and the laws of gravity

Hey you know gravity is no law it’s just something that happens over and over again

Without failure and without exception

Some kind of slavery

To a love without conclusion

Without explanation

Without end
