Winter Walk 

It’s zero degrees outside 

but we still put on our sneakers 

and walked up the hill behind our house. 

It was the clearest of nights 

the tower blinking green 

against the pure indigo sky 

and we actually saw stars. 

Stars! Here in this city. 

Only a handful, but still 

they were real, non-airplane 

non-UFO 

stars.
