Skies of S(k)in

Last night,
my body was the sky.
I felt sizzling stars
glowing underneath my skin,
shining starlight through my pores,
one of my pupils was the sun
and the other was the moon.
The emboldened sun raged
with flames and rays,
sending its light down my body,
illuminating its side
of my face and body,
but with leaving the moon’s side dark.
My body was divided
into two parts:
the blue day and the black night.
My body was the sky,
last night,
I felt ten birds
fly from one part
of my body to the other,
from one part
of the sky to the other.
The ten birds made a voyage,
last night,
soaring all over my body.
Those ten birds
were your ten fingers.
