Modern Skies

 

I want new constellations tonight

since dippers and belts and crowns and crabs 

are far too antiquated

to make me point with wonder

at the night sky’s lights

 

 

I think I need dollar signs

Logos and ampersands to fill me

with the open eyed interest 

of ancient Greece

and childhood

One thought on “Modern Skies

  1. I always marvel that someone saw a crooked line of stars and extrapolated that into an entire person wearing a belt. I bet you could find new logos the same way. 🙂
