to make a mage #14

14: the role (of a star)

was he born
or
was he made

perhaps
a confluence
in the cosmos
to set a star
to shine
a particular light
on one particular night

it matters not

he
will not say

perhaps
he cannot

antecedents
are of no significance
in any case

the world is vast
and
it is minuscule
whatever role
a singular star
might have played

it lies
before him
not behind

reflected
by the gleam
in his eyes
