I Shall Wear Midnight

i shall wear midnight
wrapping it like a silky shawl
strands slipping and sliding
across my smooth shoulders

i shall steal the moon
slide it slowly on my finger
like a wedding ring
sparkling radiance on my hand

i shall pluck the brightest stars
weaving them in the strands
of my space swept hair
dusty glitter gleaming

i shall dance on Saturn's icy rings,
dip my toes in the creamy milky way,
i shall span the entire galaxy,
stopping short of the end.

i shall run between moonbeams
leap across the dark side
bouncing into the weightless atmosphere
backstroke from Mars to Pluto

and i shall wear midnight
