Constellations

We were dancing hot and strobe-dyed,
dressed in dying stars, gone nova
to plastic beats. We killed the floor.
We were the brightest before dawn,

then we faded in the dawn sky.

Dressed in dying stars, gone nova,
Our hearts were naked and shining.
We were the brightest before dawn
exposed us in a matte finish,

as we faded in the dawn sky.

Our hearts were naked and shining
as we mourned the death of the night.
Exposed, us, in a matte finish,
we kissed our painted faces clean,

then we faded in the dawn sky.

As we mourned the death of the night,
we burned our paled constellations.
We kissed our painted faces clean,
sex and thanksgiving to the moon,

as it faded in the dawn sky.
