you can see a lot
from Space


you can see queens and
warriors and
culturally significant bears


you can see particles
of petrified dust and
the foggy glow of earthshine


you can see diamonds and
inky tendrils of
cosmic indigo


you can see velvet and
orchestras and
ethereal silence


you can see the
deepest darkest wishes
of a billion strangers


you can see the
entire essence of living and
death too


but what you can’t see is
the homeless man in the park
on saturday mornings


he is selling hand-painted parasols
even though it has been cloudy
for months
