TURNING ON BRIGHT LIGHTS
How long is forever?
When stars are fading, and the
sun is breaking
and Jupiter runs red,
if we don’t share breaking bread
will forever stop?
I’m not sure I remember
what the world looks like
but I think your dreams
and mine are of love and light.
Here, stars differ
from those above you. Still
will you teach me to dance?
