on a slippery sky
among the blown ash
and dissipating screams

a boy gets lost
a girl, her treasure buried
… no one sees the light go out

they find each other on the tip of a star

surrounded in blackness
dancing on a slim, wet
band of light

holding tight,
squeezed impossibly shut

as it falls and flickers
scatters, sprinkles
onto garbage and drying blood

the howls that echo in their
newly fledged ears pierce the night

a baby is born
a mortal dies

infinity circles the eight
as they learn to crawl together
touching skin and skein

just like then,
and then

their once upon a time
a timeless dance

their feet, fingertips
