Love Letter to a Lukewarm Night Sky
by CM Hagan

You are my blanket.

And it isn't so much about being warm
But being embraced
In the safety of knowing that
By and large
In spite of everything
Moving at a speed too fast to catch
You don't change.

The stars are arranged predictably each night
Against the same indigo canvas
And though many of them
May have actually burned out by now
We will never know
For as fast as light travels through
The universe
We are the last to see it shine.
