Royalty By Cosmic Design

lifting her one pale green
and one actual brown eye
to the celestial bodies
that hung in abstract
locations as if
dangling from
black velvet sky
never had she seen
so many stars before
her road weary eyes
that she hung her
head out the passenger
side window like a child
seeing fireworks from
afar for the very first time
if only this were her
very own planetarium
with stars at her fingertips
wistfully released
a contented sigh
whereupon she identified Cassieopia
I’d be heir to the throne
of the Egyptian queen of big sky.
