Men Are From Mars

Men Are From Mars

Men Are From Mars 1920 1440 Mia Herman

Our baby would have been
a bright star, I tell him
one morning after
the miscarriage, though
I don’t think he picks up
on the tense, the way
would have been
unhinges me
like someone shattering
champagne bottles
against my sides
as I set sail for the blood
moon. The oxygen is thin
up here, is what I mean
to say as I drift further.
Or maybe, You will never
bring me back down
to earth now
that I’ve seen the stars
up close.
