Making Bargains With Celestials

Please don’t break

Or put out your light

For all the bards have sang

Your songs into purple nights

Please be a home

For me and my kin

Don’t knock down every wall

And prove everyone to be a sin

Please don’t spark

Arguments, tantrums, or Fear,

Debates, ideas, horror,

Not when we hold your hand,

And praise your glow as dear.

Please stay up,

Seated and seared,

Staying up on pillars,

Thrones and revered.
