A Sagittarian Looks Toward the Sky

For Beauty

When she says
Look at those stars
what she’s seeing
are the stars beyond

the stars The ones
you can’t see Not
even by looking into
her eyes if you were

one of the lucky ones
who she let do so Yet
there are many who
greatly desire to look

into her eyes knowing
they still won’t be able
to see those stars
beyond the stars
