Tigre Estrella 

When we connected and you opened your delirious lips I watched you spit stars and couldn’t help but see your soul at the back of your throat like burning embers.

Pushed those stars from behind your teeth onto my waiting tongue and I shivered because you are unique.

The way your spirit bends and twists and the way your thoughts dart across the dark sky like a comet: concise, intense yet somehow so wild.

Confidently different and charismatic in your existence. Entertaining my hungry heart at the fringes until your tail escaped my grasps.

When you try to catch stars you will get burned but these burns on my hands from trying to grab a tiger by the tail are reminders that it gets better.

Keep shining bright, despite being millions of miles away-

Your light helps people dream.
