6 million million miles

any true flame has a flicker

if it’s floating rock you can tell quicker

an unwavering light

that you see in the night

is a planet, but that’s not the kicker.

 

when you’re giving the night sky a stare

wrap your mind around this, if you dare;

if it’s not a cigar

but a faraway star

it may be a fire that’s not even there!
