Poem: Constellation  
Is that it?
What, the Big Dipper?

I don’t think so.
Where is it?
There, I think.

Setting? Wow.
It’s almost winter.
I guess.

It’s cold enough.
That’s why Orion’s there.

I know. But don’t you think there’s more important things?
Like what?
Like… I don’t know. The fact that you

Can see the Milky Way – and it’s so bright!
Or how the patterns in the sky could be
the patterns in my mother’s brocade couch.
That stuff, it matters. Doesn’t it?
I guess.
