I am gravely aware that the astral illuminations
bespeckling the depths of darkness above
are not mine to have, to claim sovereignty over;

but may I borrow their magnificent boundlessnessโ€“
these celestial beings that are the closest things to
spatial-temporal eternity that I can perceiveโ€“just for tonight?

So that I may share something vast and seemingly lasting
in a moment that we both know to be bittersweetly fleeting,
bound to the mortal fragility of terrestrial life.
