At Starfall

At Starfall (Randyjw; February 25, 2018)


It was way past twilight

and I was helpless to stop it

My body lurched as if I could

jump into the sky

to run up on high clouds

in maybe four steps or five

For it was but a moment

a chance encounter

with a bright star that shined

and I watched it plummet

as it fell towards my horizon

A meteor shower in which

I would bathe at any hour

It was really 1:24 or 1:25

in the morning

More or less, give or take

I’d do both, and all


to help that star from its fall

and to have it reawake
