astronauts trying to find houston
he bites the crescent moon-golden syrup-
letting it orbit him around the earth,
as i indulge in the silver oceans, rising falling. 
don’t trust the stars, they always fail to drift in beauty-the explosions of color in my head, are replaced with glimpses of ivory wrinkles against a matte bedsheet.
someone stronger than me could fold pillow covers-making the corners meet, pressing the indents of our heads together.
the scents of unwashed strands of thought mingle between the strings sewn tightly, and he lets go of the sickle moon- surfing the cotton clouds until he returns, floating gently with me in metallic waves.
