"Night of the Living"

If the constellation of stars
above your house looks like 
a woman skating across a lake

you could name it that. If someone 
long before you called it warrior with a sword 
or dragon at the gate, it doesn’t matter, 

it’s your sky now. If you’re lost in the evening 
fog all your former selves line up by the side 
of the road to show you the way home. 

If you want to pry open the moon 
and crawl inside, remember the sky 
waits like a clock for you to unwind...
