Dying of the light?

Do not look up like Abraham did
You could misunderstand the prophecy
Stars are few – sparse dropplets of dew
If we only knew when Edson sent us the bill!
Paths down here were so bright at night
That we ignored how we would miss the suns, so bright

I miss the mystical zodiacs, all of them
The sugary taste of the Milky Way band
I miss the stargazing between lovers
The silence yelling at us: ‘Explorers!’
Dark space is cheating. It seems disperse
It lies of a dimmer, poorer universe

I believe we can still use our brains though
For heavens’ sake, we can change rivers’ flow!
We can give back the sky its former paint
Those wild streetlights can still be tamed
There’s hope to return to that bliss
Star loaded sky watching a loving kiss

    I see what you did there with the comparison between the edible milky way and the one of the universe, very clever. I also fancy the beginning of the Elegy juxtaposing, the sky in Abraham time and today. Air pollution is dangerous. I can send you some stars though, they twinkle so lovely on my end?

    1. Thanks Noirfire. It was inescapable. Taste, Milky way. It begged to be written!
