Constellation Dinner Party

I imagine

Sirius stealing the Spotlight with a boisterous voice

Toasting to Regulus who nods sagely in a tweed coat and top hat.

A portly Ursa Major comforting herself with savory gustation

as she rues the distance of her tormented yet dedicated Orion

accompanied by his Canis Major and Canis Minor.

Though they are hidden on this eve of rain and clouds

I let their unseen light and conviviality

guide me

like the explorers of yore.

My auspicious astrolabe.
