meteor

Melissa Wozniak, “Friction”

she is a fast burning star,

a void

collapsing into its gravity,

a meteor consumed by the fire of escaping itself.

.

the dust of her hangs suspended, flecks of light

long split flash

particles refracting lifetimes never fully formed.

.

if only you stayed, if only you stayed still

for a moment just one

in eternity to settle into the peace of what is,

but that too is a lie:

.

carbon in motion / battles of cells /

electrons that orbit under static-seeming skin

.

above in the night Halley is a frozen smear

but already it is

light years ahead of its tail.
