Soul Dust

If I look at the stars

and nothing looks back,

does that mean I am blind?

or maybe

no one is looking.

and everyone knows

you can only be seen

if someone is looking.

But I don’t care if I am seen

I just want to look

at Cassiopeia, Taurus, and Orion

and feel like I belong,

a small fleck of soul dust

standing on Earth’s skin

wondering

if anyone can see.
