How can you see a lunar eclipse? It’s no small part of an orbit.
The cold is on and the kitchen does a sizzling sound.
I keep ordering books for the library
that no one reads. The planets show up on the stamps.
The stamps show up on seasonal cards.
I have never seen such big dresses for such small frames.
As if the pearl between these legs would blind passersby with its light.
Fitting that night drapes down to the ankles.
