the first kiss

the first kiss
that I had with you
is lost

between
the thousand ebbs and tides
sunbeams that penetrate the clouds
the dusk and dawn
the seagull cries
the ferry toots
and children’s cries
between the mother’s lullabies
or ambulance sirens
between the winking stars
or in some shady crater on the moon

between
the pages of a boy’s school diary
like a dry leaf

is lost
between

astronomy

last night

when we danced
between the solar prominences
thrillingly

some remote stars
collapsed into supernovas
unwillingly

and some hungry black holes
rumbled
chillingly

also, one wandering comet
came too close to planet Earth
searingly

the divine messenger came down
and said
sneeringly

friends,
there are more quiet ways
to study astronomy
