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


posturing

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
