Fallen Star

Have you ever
seen a fallen star
and wondered

who caught it?

Was it Aphrodite,
who kept
it captive,
a gift for her next lover?

Or Apollo

who stole
its light,
to alter the beauty of his lyre?

For I doubt
if you had caught
the star

you’d keep it a
secret from me,

because our lives
were sworn to truth
and love, and secrets

are hypocrisy.
