Our love is like

lightning on Venus

–35 miles high

This relationship is

floating like ions

in Titan’s atmosphere

The discovery of us

began as teenage galaxies

light years away

It’s that dark energy

made us realize the force

with which we oppose gravity

So, like Voyager 2,

I believe we will cross

the termination shock threshold

Because we are

the fastest moving stars

heart astronomers have ever seen

These spiraling arms are

an eternal valentine

for all loving scientists
