Saturn I will paint your name in lunar blue all over my bedroom wall just to chip away at it until my nails are gone. I will burn dead stars into my skin with your favorite brand of cigarette until I feel something. I will soak up the moonlight until I shine even half as bright as you do. And I will get your favorite planet tattooed on my back to remind myself that everything beautiful is always out of my reach. April 2, 2019
