they ask us what it means to be in orbit, and i tell them to talk to the planets. i was never a planet. girl, let me tell you this, all i was and all i ever will be is the taste of starstuff on your tongue, peeling plaster and aluminium foil taped onto these walls. i was a promise and i was glitter and i shone. i think everyone wanted to be the sun when they were younger, but i was that star in the corner of the library and you looked at me like there were comets in my eyes
i don't know about orbit. i will never follow the system. this is what it means to be a rebellion.
i used to be a star once and maybe my star chose to become me. oh god, i just want to make her proud.
