I am always seeing everything
for the first time.
Can’t remember anyone’s name.

I’m a rogue body—
nothing calls me home.
Forward forever,
never to return.

I get asked and asked
by each star that I pass,
if each star they can see
is a rogue one like me;
and if the blackness between
is a dark star, unseen.

Well, the time has not yet come
to talk about things
I think I know.

(But if something is true,
it is true in darkness, too.)

I’m a rogue body—
nothing calls me home.
My mother is chaos;
my dad’s a black hole.

And the highway is just
another kind of river.
