Seeking Starlight by Adrianna_Writer | Jan 13, 2023 Seeking Starlight Constellations dispatch their messages to me in blazing luminescence,cracking through lightyears like a zillion neurons firing,only to fizzle out at my doorstep. The stars in the city suck. The dead-air desert also sucks,but Joshua trees point their bushy-tipped fingers to the sky,beckoning starlight down to their Mars-scape bed,and I recline to let the light wave over me.But goddamn, people suck!car headlights scream at each other, light-saber fighting for the choicest spot, a galactic battle waged between pick-up trucks. This poem is about me trying to find enlightenment.I’m not sure how far I should go with this. Because you know technology can really suck too,even simple things like the Lunar Beginners Telescope.I touch the focus knobs and spin tiny Saturn rings but I only see my eyelashes blinking back at me. Trying so hard just sucks sometimes. I tap my finger on the slick silver padand stream that true-crime show I’ve been watching.Maybe I’ll try again next week.
