between

While we peer
through limpid fingers,

the sun-star
bombards us
at the speed of light.

The night may remind
our throbbing cells
of their past lives
as phosphorescent
meteorites.

We throw words
at the spinning,
we name our breath.

We are always
empty cups
being filled
at the intersection
of nothing and something.
