Earth Hour, 2009

street lights remain
on, descending flight looking
for airport flashes in star braille

and I listen for oars slipping against the sides
of time – Odysseus searching
the unknown at the point map falls off the world

because there was no entertainer light
and the Aegean murmured Poseidon’s name –
bit player in time’s chorus
