Poem: String of Millionstars* (draft)

And you,
string of millionstars,
knocked about
the bedside table
with one swift kick
from the rustling sheets,
you ascend,
strung up swiftly
across the ceiling
by the conductor's
and there you remain,
in the warm glow
of lovers' laughter,
until heaved
in a celestial downspin,
to be gathered
on your bed
of molten amber.

* - Millionstars, also known as Baby's Breath (
Gypsophila paniculata), are a type of perennial flower covered with tiny, loosely-scattered, white petals.
