WANDERERS
(1/29/16)


there are
five of them
in the sky
this morning

a planetary
Easter egg
hunt

Jupiter

Mars

Venus

Saturn

I know
that Mercury
is there

somewhere
near
the horizon

lost
in the predawn
metropolitan
haze

as I walk
across
this parking lot
each clear
morning

I notice
the slight
daily shift
in their positions

against
a relatively still
starry background

beyond
the foreground
of my predictable
routine
