The Sky at Night

A belated excursion to
the stone collection
of our feelings
Little left here
worth showing
Is there
from an anthropological perspective
a need for love
Or merely for
yearnings easy
to disappoint
Which stars
go down
as white dwarfs
What relation
does a heavy heart bear
to the art of comedy
Does the hunter
Orion have answers
to such questions
Or are they
too closely guarded
by the Dog Star
