On Saturn’s turn

It’s saturday

& I think about

How once upon a

Saturn’s turn

I saved you

Out of

Incredible love

& fathomless


A celestial

Fairy tale



I couldn’t bear

The absence

Of you

From our worlds

From our words

From that



Of you

That day

I held us

For a moment

& by the arrival

Of lilac dusk

My prediction

You would

Come to

End us

In sleep

We persisted


The coming days

Telling of

Fantastical love


Upon my return

To Jupiter’s orbit

I met 2 moons

Coming back

To myself

& you

So far away

So close

You met

Me there

To say…


I won’t

Repeat it
