Moorish Skies at Night

Darker, brighter, more busy and packed
than you’d think. Space between stars,
smaller. It’s a crush of energy out there–

sparkling gas and moonshine. Lie flat. Gaze
up, still your eyes if you can – caught by
flicker and cosmic chatter. Few black holes

to sink into and many more exchanges – static
of the spheres – than you remembered. It’s
a melée hanging over us, snapping light shows

cast through eons. Names change by latitude, by
geography, by celestial cartography. But it’s
broadcasting despite us and we notice mostly

from the corners of our terra firma eyes.
