“Starry, Starry” Knight

 
 
 
 

“Starry, Starry” Knight,
Prince of Venus,
Duke of Mars,
how dare you rob
my caratless mind!
I cannot seek justice
against your heist
for in your lips,
I tasted the moistened Earth;
for in your chest,
I romanced with the grandest canyons of Universe.
I cannot seek justice
when together,
we burglarized the love birds
and albatrosses.


“Starry, Starry” Knight,
Prince of Venus,
Duke of Mars,
how could you lit a fire
in my arid mouth?
It’s now a brushfire
burning deep inside.
I cannot seek justice
against your arson
for in your smile
I landed and lingered in the moon
longer than Armstrong;
for in your kisses,
I pirouetted with the stars.

 

Together,
We bewilder the comets;
We damn the planets–
they think
ours is the new sun.
