stardate by Mandy Macdonald

to mediate contradictions

you have only to string them side by side like beads

or the stars in Ursa Major, thus:

…………….we friends become

…………….lovers

…………….become

…………….comrades

 ..

&/or

in another & parallel universe

we get drunk and only dream it

 —

hanging between worlds that night

I didn’t dare move

back or forward, only stay put

despite rope burns on the hands and a sense

……………..of drowning in stars

space touched me hardly

perceptible, or was it

your hair blowing

…………………………..laughing

across

…………….my face?

 ..

point of clarification, comrade: after years of trying

……………..& crying

the old rusty crampons of luv are like a beak in the guts

so throw me a lifeline and I will make you

a necklace of all kinds of music

but if not

I shall let go of this starstring and

from where we are it’s

 ..

…………………………….a long way

 ..

…………………………………………….down
