He Looks In the Telescope

Her face is like the midnight sky.

The whites of her eyes are half moons,

and the stars escape when she cries.

I hope she doesn''t anytime soon,

but I've tagged her with graffiti constellations,

my mark all over her face.

I think I can see Leo in her black eye,

her smile's all over the place.

Oh, no, a shooting star.

if I let go of her rings,

I know she'll orbit away far.
