So I’ve aged. The stars are stilltoo high and far too sweet.I’ve bloodied my knuckles tryingto climb up to them, fractious reminders.
Turn them out. Keep them safein a velvet-lined box.

So I’ve aged. The stars are still
too high and far too sweet.
I’ve bloodied my knuckles trying
to climb up to them, fractious reminders.

Turn them out. Keep them safe
in a velvet-lined box.
