andromeda

leaning
back
gazing up
at the stars

remembering
the time
he pointed
out to her
andromeda
galaxy

the galaxy
you can see
with the naked eye

feeling
so
small

--

that morning
painting
the sign
herself

andromeda
it says

a galaxy
she would
shape
with her
two
hands

even as
it takes
on a life
of its own

she props
the sign
in the window
and opens
the shop
door

opening
to the
world
for the
first
time
