Distant Galaxy

This body is a town.
It is holy because it is whole.

It is fire because men need something to fear.
It is alive because women carry it for nine months.

In this body
Is a tomb of past lovers.

In this body
Electricity becomes a poem

A poem comes alive
This body is a “creation story“.

This body tells me,
That dark is also beautiful.

And if they ask you what this body is?
Say it is what a distant galaxy looks like.
