Milky Way





It's the unassuming way
He holds his cigarette.
Peers sideways from his eyebrows. 
Burning blue.  Liquid voice.
Reined in like a well-bred stallion.
Or is it the way she clings?
Hands open and tactile. 
Golden proportion.
Looking for certainty in his eyes.
She seems brash next to him.
Easy.  Not overpowering.
Smiling diamond in Pegasus. 
Riding velvet. 
We worship the contrast.
Hold on to the backs of our seats.
Weightless.  Milky.
Compelling nebula.
Soft and hard shooting stars.
Constellation too good to be true.
Exotic smear in the galaxy.
