	They will definitely reappear 
	among the brightest of the stars 
	when the urge to discover
	blasts the dust of ignored durations.
	Humans only recently began 
	observing the traveling light 
	and gave them names of heroes 
	from a legendary past 
	soon the heroes and the stars
	were sold to the philanthropists
	with loved ones, not loved enough.  
	If only there was some light 
	In thoughts or even instincts
	You would be able to see, stars.
	You had another idea
	lost in the liquid vitamins
	to constrain stress, regain strength, 
	to restrain and restrict aging, 
	hold on to the straps
	as the bus jumped the potholes
	the jolt awakened anger
	the narcosis created a smile
	several teeth of mouths twinkled
	to light, to share the fear
	as if we are all in this together!
	Even when it is not permitted
	The question must be asked!
