I think sometimes of space debris,
Tiny remnants of collisions,
Some — head on,
Some — passing grazes,
Drifting endlessly into oblivion.
A symphony of past gravities,
And misaligned trajectories.

I also wonder what we are,
Some — noxious lovers,
Some — fading friendships,
Drifting endlessly into alternate lives.
A violence of our illusions,
Incapable of hope and
humble resolution.

I think we are debris,
the parts of us chipped apart.
While what remains of us,
Is bound to a celestial destiny
In which our stars,
and our collision have played a part.
