I fell into watching the swiftly passing stars, flat on my back,
My body refusing to sink into the hands laid out for me
But pleasantly and steadily I began to see you,
Tearing my arms upward and letting my fingers move the planets like chess pieces
Until they aligned perfectly in the moments I wanted them to.
People say you cannot control your destiny but I am
Controlling mine with one pinky on the dial,
Here you are, I see you, and
I say it with more than a momentary sense,
More than a sense that turns blind when the lights turn sour.
Here you are, I see you,
Follow my movements,
Watch the sky dance under me
As I pass it through my hands like water
Dripping out of a falling glass,
