todays prompt… a poem about the stars…

A space filled with us
Hands undone
Far flung
Slowly streaked across
An unsetting sky
Curiosity
Fallen
Hanging undignified or
Stoically silently upright
Regurgitated children
Battle-wearied warriors
Twisted dragons
Punished women
An endless wait
We
Who were freed from a sea-shored chest
Who dared speak our queenly beauty
Who were raped and banished for it
Still
Safer up here than
In that bear pit
Below
