Cat star

Remembering, on this day one year ago, two lost boys.


Grey day dawning

and in the sky

a starman rose,

a cat star leapt,

over the double, over-arching rainbow,

with inhuman grace,

dropping away like morning dew,

the miasma of drugs and sleep,

embracing the wild empty blackness,

the star-embroidered blackness,

the silent, velvet-padded blackness

of infinity.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
