Neglected words

Neglected words

A living mirror of the stars
not quite—

we are not light reflected
just look into her eyes

see the life that glows there
warm flesh with fresh dreams

we’re all on a mission
to save the world

supermen and women
carrying the baton of love

and in the vast expanse
of night no star shines alone

and every intimate world
lit by another or others

so that the word world
means perspective

point of view
within the collective

every creation has
its fingerprints

unique and non-negotionable
and as light

that passes unimpeded
through glass the journey

through our heavens
knows no obstacle

therefore if you say love
mean it or be damned
