A Poem

last night I slept

under the stars

cloudy night, pinprick light

i stared into the cosmos

and it stared right back

i missed my mother

though she sat beside me

i missed my father

i wished his quiet guidance

had been stronger

i, too, am remote and careful

my old friend

where are you

we braved this insanity together

but i had to leave

when people don’t change

where is there to go

I am one with the universe

yet apart

days and years pass like minutes

spirits pass with the twilight hue

i am beneath their notice
