seven ways to wish upon a star

..

tremble the sky loose
with your own salt, fill
your hands with indigo
and ebony. ask orion

a rhetorical quest
-ion or two {in pig latin,
or martian, or sioux.}

welcome broken. speak
only when spoken to,
by breeze. watch for the
slivers that fall too far

for anyone else to see.
stand under this
fabled falling sky
…………..with me.
