breaking the sky

i lay down
my body
on this bare piece
of earth
breathe in
the scent of grass heavy with dew
life borders
borders where
the passing made history
with each footstep

skin pressed
down
i watch
through open fingers
above my prone self

palms to the wide black dome
supplicant
turn my hands over
and
over
Night
to break the sky
until the stars
fall endlessly
through the space
between
me and eternity

another turn
more stars fall
caught in the netted strands of my hair

when it all falls apart

a part of me
finds
its way

home
