“After God”

 

“After God”

 

The man I love most says one day

he will take a ballpoint pen and connect   

the stars across this freckled

scoop of chest and milky way.

We’ll cross the slope

of pale belly and name

the new constellation after a god

who shows people

all the places they might shine.

 

–Jenny Browne

About Laura

When my nest emptied I moved from the big city to a little big town to tend to a ramshackle yellow house on the edge of town. These are my Yellow House Days.
