And then, without a sound 

The eyes of the sky


As I was crowned 

Studded in stardust

Of light

Both lost and found 


Black and heavy


Nebulas all around

Bear witness:

I am the

King of the Night

I am darkness bound 

Infinite, chaotic 

Neither root

Nor ground

Hold down the holy throne 

Of my inky womb

Throbbing like

The moon

In Her celestial tomb

Or I in my room

To pour my soul
