A plane crawls across the night sky,
its taillights flashing.
Its wing is about to touch the porcelain moon.
But I see a different picture:
A girl inserts an earring with a ruby into her ear.
She bent her face down and froze,
trying to shut the clasp;
her lips are slightly parted,
and I can see the tip of her tongue.
