Stars upon the stairs

Who knew

what stars could do?

They rained down from the heaven

onto earth

like spears-

like tears

like flashing lives that are gone too soon.

Upon the stairs I sit and watch the moonlit sky

through a window

and I wait

until I hear the rattle

behind me

from the top tread

a star has come and is rolling down to meet me

but be careful

it is still hot.
