Golden Rays

by Sophia Falco

The man on the moon

shoots the sun,

some golden rays fizzle out.

 

The darkening sky

does not deter me from

walking my tiger in circles

on the cracked wooden floor

in my yellow bricked

apartment.

 

(Red leash bedazzled with rhinestones.)

 

I sigh creating a void,

orange and black stripes

disappear—

remaining rhinestones.

 

I pick up each sparkling

jewel and arrange

them in a star.
