there's a boy i know
who used to swallow coins
like hard candy;

tree sap
stuck to his chin
from my own hands,
September
lucid in our lungs
and the road
a blur from our sadistic words.

he doesn't believe in hell
and
neither do i.

but i believe in the stars 
and i want to know what happens to them
when they die.


i don't know if i like this.
edit: wow i got a DD and i cannot breathe. thank you all.

Nice work and congratulations on a DD!  :la:

I particularly love the last stanza.  It leaves the reader with something to think about.  And I love how the title implies stars as in celebrities but the poem seems to lead more into stars as in the ones that dot the night sky.
