the stars           tell stories
of new love
and old families
ancestors,
those who’ve
glimmered in the sky before us
hidden
among constellations
and bright white

who we are lies
within the shapes
of fish and lions
somehow we’re able to
connect
our lives
with the small fragments of light

stars are already
dead
and we’re already
alive
