    Not for joy the stars burn.
    - Robinson Jeffers


    You consider the night sky
    Filled to excess
    With trillions upon trillions of other galaxies
    Like insects
    With small torches
    To whose allegiance do they swarm

    While you consider
    How your poetic utterances briefly swirl
    And then vanish
    Like a fragrant smoke at the horizon of dreams
    Leaving your heart
    Soaked in regret
