Starlight

Moonbeams
at my back
I sweep
stardust
from my eyes

Once inebriated
with thirst
with lust

Now

Firefly
in a jar

The once resplendent
blaze
feeble
weak

Longing for
lustrous
heavens

To light
the way home

Chill of night
permeates
spent loves
spent lovers

The stars sigh

Resigned
to their
fate

    When I went to England, these Starlights are so vivid that you can’t believe Sheffield, Newcastle, and Leeds have such nice Starlights every night.
