space

Give me space you said
and I
misunderstanding
opened my hands
above my head
so the distant jewels
of the farthest white stars
shone between my fingers.

You know they are already dead
you said
and I said yes
I know.

Highly commended by the judges of the @UoMCreativeMCR @geolsoc Poetry Competition
