  • “have you ever seen the milky way before?”
    “i don’t know.” i tell you,
    “how can you see a galaxy if the earth
    is lying on top of it?”

    so you;
    rearrange the crumbs of the pizza we ate,
    beneath a trail of crumbs,
    one large pepperoni at the tip of a plate
    you say;
    “this is the earth
    and above here, one arm of the milky way.
    it curves around us. “

    and the galaxy’s arm eavesdropping from above
    must have pointed
    to the silent spark
    between us

    a spark so quiet,
    i wonder...
    did you feel it?
