the stars


let the stars
rule over me
let them
give me
my destiny

let the zodiac
unfold
my days

let them
i have no more
i have no word
left
for my own world

i look at the lines of my palms searching for myself
let the stars
tell me now, who am i

finally on the day when i am no longer what i have known myself to be
let the stars tell me my name

let the stars bury me in the place where the stars choose me
let my world be the world owned by these stars
i have no word
i have nothing left for myself

yes, let these stars comfort me let all things come without my calling
