She dragged the milky way down with her,
every light-year imaginable from Mercury to Neptune
fit into the strands of her amethyst tresses.
I called upon her nettles
to punish the vagrant who resides within me;
She flicked her eyes above my head
but would not grant my wish.
Instead, she drew up a cloak of perpetual evening
to blind the cruelty in my veins
so that my innocence may have a chance to escape.
