Can we change the constellations of stars if we wanted, or
should we wait for the global rotation, pirouettes of light?
My calendar is cruelly efficient
when it says it is March, I know it is so
Winter loses its grip on longer days
trees regain leaves and their shadows stretch out
Another day, another week another year
long days melt one into another
Some nights are clearer than others and
If we watch closely we can see constellations shift
Whole groups of stars moving across the horizon
taking up their summer residence in a different part of our galaxy
their own version of timeshare
Do people send you notes about how long it has been?
Five years, ten years? It cannot be possible.
Maybe they are telling me a story
My calendar is efficient, however
it never lies
