Star

I like stars. I have no idea why I like them so much. I have a star tattoo on my collarbone. It's over a year old, they fucked it up, and I still like it. I'm going to get one that's a mirror image of it on the other side of my collarbone, and pretend it was all on purpose. I have shirts with stars, a belt with stars, shoes with stars, a jacket with stars, etc. And when I stop and think about it, I can't pinpoint why I like them so much.

Why do people say that stars twinkle? When I look up at the sky at night, twinkle is definately not the first word to pop into my head. Maybe shine, or shimmer, but twinkle sounds so....childish. Maybe that has something to do with the song. Maybe twinkle was a very sophisticated word before someone ruined it by putting it in a child's song. That makes me wonder what other words will become childish soon.
