Celestial Duet

Rainbow Promise


We sleep together.

I nap at twilight

As you turn,

Still dreaming in the early morn.

Only the letters of your name I see,

For I have never beheld your face.

Terrified to pronounce their sounds,

The darkness of their type comes straight

From the hammered bracelet

Of the asteroid belt,

And the purest ink

Of Neptune’s dark rings.

But the pressure on my bodice is real.

The bias of your love, I feel,

As light pierces the dark water,

And forces the rainbow.


-jenn long






The pull is undeniable

Nothing between us but an idea

In a vacuum

A few fragmented particles

Pinned down

By this stately dance

A measured quadrille

Through the panoply




Spinning under control

Balanced in a fingertip embrace

Through mystic time’s


In deepest dreams of mythic space
