Dark Matter by Ren Martinez

should the stars fall from eyes wider than the universe

and burn onto the pallor of cosmic cheeks

it will be a grief that rattles through the stratosphere

a vacuum torn through carbon dust and the taste of goodbye

leave a last kiss on this milky way mouth

the one that you once said held entire galaxies

drink them down into the burning black hole

where your love for me once burned

a supernova swallowed over awkward silences and cold coffee

they say that it all began with a shout and a bang

the door slams shut behind you and the universe spirals on
