Cold, glittering, and far
a lonely kid’s light of hope or
a dream that will upon waking be kept
like a sin in one’s heart
one star, two stars, and more
this starry-eyed kid covets the Galaxy

TN Dockrey currently attends law school (but please don't hold
that against me--we carbon-based life forms do have to eat) and when
not wasting time reading Supreme Court opinions, is very busy writing
science fiction, contemplating metaphysics, and reconciling paradoxes
with or without creating holes in the Universe.
