The Meyers Briggs

By Arielle Lipset

I know I exist.
Yours are the eyes
carving my dust
into small piles
of nothing

You and I
sprinkle our bones
into the wind, dissolve
under the line
of lowering skies.

Who do you want to be?

Astronomy makes us small—
a blink of something.
I’m glad you agree
our names are others’ names.
