Star Wars (#106)

I’d call you both my North Stars,
but then Trish would point out
there’s only one,
and Chaney would argue
that if that’s the case,
it would have to be her
and I would pull up images
of night skies in Calcutta
and Jo-burg and Rome
to prove that different views
show different stars,
so you two could agree I’m wrong,
something we all know I’ll never admit.

So I’ll squeeze your hands
and keep quiet,
looking up towards the sky
for guidance and light,
a constant reminder
of how to find home.
