Are you Sirius?

"the dog-star rages..." --Lord Byron

“the dog-star rages”

--Lord Byron

romantic vagabond

shows off his shine

a constant semi-

precious stone

white sapphire

what’s so special about Sirius?

part of a major constellation

but solitary

his position in the night sky

stands out

from the crowd of minor

stars always

keeping his options open

only the moon

herself can out shine

the dog-star

weird and difficult

in his glowing vagueness


for all to see but light

years away

from anyone’s orbit

daylight’s erasure

the sun

beats him down

moonlight out does

his bright spark with her soft glow
