the difference
is in your eyes
beholder –
i’m thinking
of the astronomer
again and how
lives are pulled
by forces
and about what turns
while I listen
to sad songs
from other planets
and the storm
around these walls
that shelter
us from
too crazy –
there are
stars beyond
this snowy world
and your mask
is a thing with feathers
