plutonian prince
the maiden moon
hangs herself...
20° Sagittarius
my eyes burn
like the remnants
of stars spit
from a black hole
no more
a consolation.

and Saturn returns to square your sun...
cool poem...though I wish there were more...
it's like hearing a song you like but it's only 2-1/2 minutes long
otherwise...nICE  :J
 — JKWeb

ah hah people have said that about my songs before, too ;)

many thanks, once again, JK.

...tell me more about the return of Saturn...
 — SarahMichele

one of the better poems on this site. this is complete.
 — raskolniikov

I agree--beautiful work.
 — PaulS

and with the return of Saturn, maybe it's not a huge deal this isn't longer,
at least you didn't waste words...you're sun is squared 10 fold :)
 — JKWeb

raskolniikov: a great compliment, and i'm pleased to see this made your favorites. Thanks.

PaulS: very glad you enjoyed this too and took the time to comment. Thanks.
 — SarahMichele

Once again... hit with two '1's' sans comment; typical of this site.  
 — SarahMichele

like the full stop in line 1
don't like ellipses

dont need "like the" in 7

hole could take its own line

try no full stop in 11
no parens in 12

cool. not yet scored.
 — noodleman

noodleman: this seems concise enough to me -- removing the bits you suggested would emaciate it. However, I am considering removing the full stop in line 11, per your suggestion. The parens in line 12 are essential, as it is a 'whisper' word sorta(afterthought)

comment is more important than rating. thank you.

dear Sarah's sister,
I'm extremely sorry for you loss.  She was an excellent poet and seemed like a very cool person.

 — JKWeb

the play on consolation/constellation is lovely

as you were, Sarah Michelle.
I pity those who were cruel to you.
