Space Rocks (Draft 1)

Space Rocks (Draft 1)

I wish they’d stop explaining away
all the comets and meteors as
debunking rocks devoid of magic

There is streaking I
wish to make a wish upon
thinking of you as a star

The surprise rocks
seem to crash in Russia
and ooops we didn’t
see it coming
neither now nor Tunguska

I saw a shooting star
and it felt like you

I don’t mind surprises
if they are close magic
