The milky way is contained within her being
Stars illuminate her irises and Orion’s belt freckles her neck
She holds the power of entire planets in her smile-
If only she’d smile.
The universe warned her that she musn’t expose herself
But galaxies don’t like to be contained
They want to shine with the brightness of a thousand suns
Suppressing them is exhausting
She does her best to lock them deep inside her pupils
and that’s why her smile never meets her eyes
They remain concealed in a separate realm.
