fireflung

by Mark Teo (Class 2023)

seven and a thousand stars
have passed yet here you are
still standing
holding out inside a universe
built of bombs
and bursts of breathing
ignited in the wings of wanderlust
descending we combust
casting all the doubts and scrutinies
of hearts that never trust
for though we fall apart
the fire in our eyes will never falter
as we illuminate the heavens
starry-eyed, they stare and wonder
