I Prey Jadedly as the Solar System

Byline: Liz Li


I prey jaded as the solar

system; that waits for fresh descends

When all at once I caught a star

A jubilee misapprehends

Beneath the surface, sway Nova

Exploding Red Giant, sky diva

Continued as Draco that roars,

And tangled with artificial

It’s irritated by strange sores,

Brushed past the dirt terrestrial

Seconds within she had consumed

other stars and nebula marooned
