Tie Them Together

tear down black and whites
and replace them with glow-in-the-dark

stars to wish on and count on

is crippling. work more hours to satisfy

basic needs are luxurious on this side of the pond

to those paving my dreams -- the ones lined

with glow-in-the-dark stars are smiling
but melancholy stars of another

sort of a paradox. where the words
disconnect and no effort can begin to
