Body Meet

She asked, why
did the super moon
happen? Why does
the blood moon?

I shrugged. It’s just some shit
astronomers know.

When a body meet a body
coming through the sky.

When they orbit
without one touch.

Stephen Michael Antieau graduated from the University of Illinois in 2007. It was a bumpy ride. Now, he is a brilliant dispatcher, a writer and author, a continuing student of history, a musician, an art collector, a heavy reader, a light runner, a feeder of squirrels, and a faithful if somewhat doubtful Chicagoan. His temperament has always been slow-to-warm-up, and that also happens to be an adequate description of his writing career. He is an MFA candidate at Columbia College Chicago.
