Is it me or
are the stars getting harder to see?
Is Orion retiring?
Ready for social security and a pension.
What of Cassiopeia, already upside down?
Has the vain queen tired of watching a
narcissist turn the world
Where is Ursa Major?
Hibernating? Angry from
prowling the heavens, looking at us
fertilize, pesticize, plasticize.
When will Cygnus return?
Giving up immortality
who, now, would pursue
unselfishness, loyalty, generosity?
Why is Columba not with the Argonauts?
Looking for peace? Sent to find a
land of harmony and tolerance?
If our sky is fading,
what of us?
