Lying Stars


I learn from a book on physics
that stars are the oldest liars.
The distance between our world
and the stars are billions
and billions of light-years.
Even if light travels miles and miles
in a quarter of a second,
the light we are familiar today
is what they gave off billions of years ago.
Most people live and die
without embracing the earth
or aiming for the mountains
because of being distracted by
the little dead stars.
