The Aquariids and the Capricornids

Here was neither us nor we
Only in theory;
Sporadic streaks across the sky

Perhaps it was best, in retrospect
You and I never met
A physical clash never written                          in our stars.

Perhaps it had happened before,
though you laughed when I said:
“Worlds away” but I never meant distance so much as substance,

My only hope is what I believe you deserve: your surname is well worn&
whisked lovingly as the hand on the face that’s Not and never could be mine.
