Clusters of stars and shapes of dignity ram into your eyes
on a pedestal in your presence
singing joyous spheres of influence.
Courts, countries, and Cartier jewelry down from your head to your toes
arose from a throne you once knew
leaping into a galaxy staircase.
The new-age Kings and Queens are down a royal hallway;
shifting to free-falling fires in times of darkness.
Hold on to celestial romance before interlocking hands,
while watching the strength of a kingdom take over the horizons.
