Small Bear to Great Bear

May 10, 2018

 

There’s the big dipper I say

“No” she splays my

fingers into fronds 

and measures

the night sky

from minor to major

 

“There’s the big dipper”

she corrects

 

“They are all the same”

I say

 

She replies “No — they all have their

place — their color — like race

you cannot move

from one to the other”

 

I dismiss their distinctive twinkles 

and say “they are the same”

 

“They’re not” she denies

“They are in different places

Like you and me”

 

“But we’re both here”

I —

 

Her hands rise

before my face 

and block the 

stars before my eyes

 

“No — We’re not”

“You’re here

I’m back there”
