Aubade to a Collapsed Star

by Keith S. Wilson

I love this poem. That's all I want to say

I was drawn into this poem from the first line, "You bankrupt the sun, underwater ... " such a mysterious and poetic beginning, I felt invited and compelled to "read more." And then all the surprises along the way - and right up until the very last perfect word, "mascara." Such skillful distillation and expansiveness at the same time occurs throughout. I appreciate that the poem conveys meaning through poetic devices,—this allows room for me the reader to truly enter the poem and then be transformed.

Thank you for inviting me into this gorgeous poem!
