“Stargazer,” New Era, Oct. 1997, 51

Stargazer

I lie back

On my lawn chair

And watch the sky

As it turns gray

With orange edges.

The stars appear

Like open eyes

As darkness shuts its lid

On me.

A streak of light

Avoids my gaze

But the corner of my eye

Tells me it’s there—

A home run

In the cosmic

Baseball game
