galaxy boy, where are you now? ash-walnut lashes
michelangelo's fibonacci curls a face dusted with constellations smile
gleaming like a thousand suns smile beaming hologram joy
are you floating on cotton candy water vapor in
spectacular shapes glowing in gold pastures?
galaxy boy, feeling so friendless in the midst of friends that you emptied the shells of your father’s bitterness into
your multiverse mind stars for eyes
star-bound soul on the rise leaving us
to build a sun out of moon dust ashes to ashes
dust to dust.
galaxy boy, find peace within saturn’s dancing rings
find rest amid great jupiter’s crackling storms find friends
in the stars the dipper the archer the bear
galaxy boy, fly high.
