a new astronomy

if my heart were a star
would you hang it in your sky
as your sun by day
or as your guide
through the night?

and if my body were the earth
would you use it
for sowing your kisses
to grow
blossoms of pleasure
then
the fruits of love?

earth, star, flesh, dream –
here am I, my winsome one,
ready for all your whims
