Selene

  ###### The hoot of an owl, the eerie night, Draped in darkness, the forlorn skies, Only a chalice, keeping the dreamer interested.  How through a crack in a pupil, We let in pint-size light, like how one crack is enough, To let in a lone firefly into a house. How the night is a…

A Note About Kim Kardashian

The full moon glistens Owning a billion quanta of light Flawless on days when she is beautifully naked When men fall in love through telescopic eyes To catch a glimpse of her larger than life cosmos As she plays peek-a-boo with her gazer For she is the cynosure of the night A satellite that slips…
