If I were an astronaut

I would claim the window seat

my eyes would be glued

to every dust of star

and each moon belonging

to painted planets

dripped into each galaxy.

My heart would skip beats

because of the

eye pleasure,

and I would forget my body’s needs

If I could travel

gaze off forever

I would leave any moment.

I would dance straight into space

and kiss the Lord for letting me leave

Earth.
