Originally published (August 29, 2019) by Z Publishing in Alabama’s Best Emerging Poets 2019: An Anthology.

I want to write a poem about outer space.
A science fiction romance.
Two lovers, stars in the Milky Way.
Lovers, obsessed with the moon, Saturn,
With nebulae and star clusters
Because there’s a spark in – a fascination in
The absence of civilizations – other lifeforms –
The unknown.
Because stars are not accessible.
