there once was a princess

princess with the stars

Theadora Curtis

She finally lost sight of it

and the darkness was everything

Purple darkness

Plush

The stars weren’t harsh and singular

but speckled – glitter – together & apart

They winked and smiled

They laughed in a chorus

Had she thought all of that below was real?

They laughed and laughed

Her body moved in soft waves

She moved like she was in water

Then swirling

Gentle and quick, upside down and sideways

She moved like she was tracing the Milky Way

Her hands looked different

They gleamed, pearly

Every childhood dream came back to her and they were solid

Memories

Had she thought down there was real?

She glowed with the stars

They all laughed & laughed
