SEEING STARS
(1/25/19)


other
than medical
reports

cartoons

there is
hardly any
mention
about the
sensation

yet we all
experience
the light show
from time
to time

they are not
so much
a collection
of stable
constellations

but more
a meteor shower
of mortality

our bodies
signal
that something
is amiss

trauma

a lack
of oxygen

still
they do seem
to be visitors
from space

a little
of the outer

within
the inner

a cosmic
connection
all too
brief

one day
we shall be
amongst them
for good

dazzling

confusing
the minds
of the living
