Jenny Browne: After a God

full_of_stars

The man I love most says one day

he will take a ballpoint pen and connect

the stars across this freckled

scoop of chest and milky way.

We’ll cross the slope

of pale belly and name

the new constellation after a god

who shows people

all the places they might shine.
