Rocket

Standard

How am I to reach
for the stars when there is no
fuel in my rocket?

Boots

Standard

Fifteen and dreaming
of farthermost horizons
she bought acrylics
and scattered her Doc Martens
with a thousand tumbling stars

Boldly did she stride
into school on a Monday –
a living canvas
adorned in her own cosmos –
and was straightaway sent home
