“Stars in Closed Space” – VMall Greenhills, 19 December 2014

The stars

are out

in broad




above me

around me;

constellations suspended


spun around and above

and within closed spaces.


I close my eyes

to the


the milling


i let

this moment

of proximity –

my star

and yours

sharing space –

for once

just once

even once.
