Julia Vinograd



All the Night Stars


Look up at night at all the stars

looking down at you, at the part of you that shines.

There are too many stars for numbers,

there are too many people for numbers.

The stars shine forever, even when dead.

So do we. Ignore the background noise

of wars and video games and dinosaurs giving speeches.

Fear is a sheer nighty on a skeleton.

Sorrow is wild flowers in a graveyard over our tomorrows.

Look past all that.

Look up at night at all the stars

looking down at you, at the part of you that shines.

Always remember to shine.

(from Between the Cracks, by Julia Vinograd, Zeitgeist Press, 2018, www.zeitgeist-press.com)
