Around midnight at the conclusion
of a party on Jupiter.
The stars went crying into the night.
Rain appeared like a silver sea
rising to golden mountains’ edge.
weight of a tear-
Exploding into tens of thousands
of unforgettable moments.
Into the night
the stars went crying.
“When I first learned about having the virus, it was devastating. ASC was the first place I came to. ASC helped me learn about the virus and take care of myself. In ASC’s Creative Writing Workshop, I write poems about my experience. These poems give me a chance to be introspective about living with the virus. ASC’s done a lot for me, my health, and my ability to express myself.”
