fixed in the constellation gemini
pollux and castor
array the night sky
like sentinels guarding
eternity’s portal.

i cast my eyes to the milky way
and regard the twins in their brilliance
assuaged of despondence
i revel in starlight
where once a city skyline
was empyreal to behold.

but for tonight
my eyes did wish to see
colors of the empire’s spire
and the streetlamps
down franklin street.

my glimpses espied
the beta star pulses brightly
allaying encompassed malaise
from the darkness about me.
