i lost my cigarettes today while
sparing kisses to too many witches
with apastron blackberry tongues.


& like the scattered stars of scars,
saturn's rings whispered secrets
to the telescope eyes of these strangers
cradling galaxies between lovely bones-


( their fingertip heat
knowing nothing of intermissions. )

-dp
.

Apastron: When two stars that orbit each other are as far away from each other as they can get.

I really LOVE space imagery! It's a funny coincidence... A couple years ago I wrote poem to my boyfriend, one line mentioning Saturn's rings singing. I thought maybe I had seen it somewhere, do you know if the personification of Saturn appears in anything else? Just wondering :) Anyway, great work.

Mellifluous and good use of the word 'apastron', which is a new word for the day :)

From now on, take that as my general reaction to all your works, because that's pretty much spot-on.

Damn, you're superb.

I thought that might be too much, actually. As it is a bit of a tongue twister. But, I like it too. C:

Sometimes, I find that poems with as many metaphors as these go overboard, but though you've practically packed your poem with descriptive-meets-fantastical, something about this is just fascinating and obscure enough. I love it, and I am intrigued.
