Inhale

Don’t breathe

Don’t move.

 

Fearing fear

Doubting doubt

Await with consternation

The constellation’s banded light.

The Milky Way, the galaxy where

a hundred billion spiraling stars, 

global clusters, seed the universe

and now these orbs

where once you nursed.

How perverse.

 

Astronomy. Alchemy. Astrology.

Let’s scan the sky

you and I for

 

       * Aries,

         * Pisces

           * Leo

             * Cancer.

 

 And then forbear another year

Fearing fear

Doubting doubt

 

Exhale

Breathe

Move on.
