What I Like About Starlight

What I like about starlight is
It hurtled out of a cosmic furnace and
Flew through the trackless void
(Hot and bright against the frigid and motionless)
Particles and waves bouncing
End over end
For a billion miles
For a million years
To land gently on your face
And frame the curve of your shoulders
The sparkle of your eyes
So even in the darkness of a moonless night
I can see to
kiss you.
