Internal Monologue by Valerie Parente
I am made of stardust and everything I believe in is written in constellations.
My entire world is comprised of traveling light that glows up the night.
And I am in awe of how the cosmos mirror my make-up.
I can hear the stars as voices in my head, an internal monologue that never ends.
Feel me breathe
and see me think
I am the language
the starlight speaks.
