Desiring Starlight

I desire to touch a star,

pull it down from its remote

perch, turn it round and round

in my hands and then take

a bite to see if stardust has grit.

I want to smell its essence — 

bright and briny as the sea.  

I want to carry it in my pocket, 

use it as my fidget spinner; 

I want to throw it against 

the wall like paint, or hang 

it on my Christmas tree.  

I’d really like to swallow

it whole, begin a new 

universe inside of me.
