Apogee


 


With you, pillow talk means


lox lines and external


fuel tanks. I have only the vaguest


notion of what these are. On hot


August nights, you try


to trace constellations, but stars


 


dance past my eyes. I put out


my tongue because I dreamed


I could catch them


like powdered sugar, tingeing


my saliva with sweetness. And now,


 


each night I lie


beside you, and I know there is more


than plasma and planetary dust


in the vacuum between our bodies.


 


You roll over and mutter


about O-rings and heat tiles.
