Eventually, the sun rises

Even in the city

Even on cloudy days when she's hanging out solo behind the scenes and all we know of it is a gradual lessening of the gloom

Somehow the light always gets through

It's time, she says

Get up

Get moving

Find something to live for

Or someone (if you dare)  

For all we know she loves to watch us as we hurtle past

Illuminated in our tiny actions

Intricate and and unbounded in a way

Stars were never meant to be
