i. concept: rain falls from the sky’s exit wounds on days when the galaxy gets too heavy /
concept: even the sky can only take so much weight.
ii. feel the solid ground beneath your feet / gravity is your safety net.
iii. the darkness is where your shadows dissipate into the inexhaustible space / is who cradles you like a lulling sea / is when you become part of the sea, your breaths tidal pushes and pulls slow-dancing with the moonlight / is why the moon now deems it safe to whisper her secrets against your saltwater skin.
iv. hold the atlas in your star-streaked palms; in this story, you are allowed to piece it back together /
to tuck it in the crevice of your trembling heart / to keep it safe.
