stars over my mouth

his room was barren

cold

i felt like an intruder

or a witness

his hands were like moist coiling snakes

the room smothered light

and cupped stars over my mouth

so i would forget

that he and i didn’t live

in the same universe

maybe i was just a shadowed sillouette

on the wall

all i know is i awoke

in a foreign landscape

unsteady
