pluto & neptune

it’s only space

between

pluto

& neptune.

 

you know 

even galileo 

was empirically 

incorrect.
 

fixed stars 

or planets.. 
 

only orbit 

makes the difference 

orbit 

 

and distance 

 

maybe a core? 

 

no matter 

I don’t believe 

they ever 

know the sun 
 

and honestly  

I am 

so tired 

of dreaming 

that I am sliding 

my fingers 

over the baby hairs 

near your face. 
 

– Sheila C.

      1. Here’s a bit of Donne that shows his panoramic perspective:

        ‘And now good morrow to our waking souls,
        Which watch not one another out of fear;
        For love, all love of other sights controls,
        And makes one little room an everywhere.
        Let sea discoverers to new worlds have gone,
        Let maps to other, worlds on worlds have shown,
        Let us possess one world; each hath one, and is one.’
