Same as Looking at the Stars by Mark Andrew Heathcote

Who do you—think, you are

What are you looking at

—How did I address that?

When I look into your eyes

It’s the same as looking at the stars

When we each wondered if

If, either they’re dead or alive.

The world is cynical

Your eyes are cylindrical

They’re the only two stars; left in the sky.

I sense I haven’t seen enough to know

I sense I haven’t seen enough of them

Not even if I look into them

Unblinking, until I, go.
