Random Poem:

Ceiling Nights
peacetonight

You took a match to the sky
 1
And your  magenta lies
 2
Collided with the night
 3
Like a ribbon dancer on fire
 4
 
 
Kept two stars in your back pocket
 5
And sided with the moon
 6
Hid behind it’s great light
 7
 
 
You practiced your poker face
 8
Held your sacred cards behind your back
 9
Shuffled them
 10
Saw which one was better for that day
 11
Which one reflected in the glass of your eyes
 12
 
 
But your hands are tiny
 13
And I see your queen slip between your fingers
 14
When you think no ones looking
 15
 
 
Burn me out with the sky
 16
Let the dashes of pink
 17
Last like confetti
 18
Pencil me in like a constellation
 19
Or in your little black book
 20
