“The Constant Pressure of Starlight”

Starlight presses down
Through all unimagined space
Drifting its dark dusts
Into our collapsing hearts
Dispersing what could have been

When you first kissed me
Did you know there are fewer 
Stars than there should be 
And the dust we are now shines
With all their missing brightness?
