over tarot readings and tea leaves,
people keep telling me
that libras just fall quickly,
and i’m wondering if my astrology
is why i keep writing you poetry
or if it’s how your arms feel around my body,
your late night obsession with coffee,
the softness of your eyes, half lidded and sleepy
that you take pictures for me
of every sunrise and sunset you see,
and how safe you make this space


NaPoWriMo Day 8: “challenge you to think about the argot of a particular job or profession, and see how you can incorporate it into a metaphor that governs or drives your poem”

Didn’t quite follow the prompt, but did play with astrology words and things
