Postcard 28

Last night, Aphrodite and Zeus came so
Close to one another, some would say
They kissed while all the stars were watching.
Just a trick of the distance, they were
As far from one another as ever, it was an
Optical illusion and our own desire to
Find connections where none
Exist, pattern seekers that we are
We draw pictures in the
Sky. Connect the dots
Tell ourselves those
Disconnected points of light can
Predict our futures and
Explain our pasts. Help us
Find love and understanding in an
Otherwise ambivalent universe which would
Freeze us dead if we ventured out without
Protection. We pretend it cares by
Calling all those spots the names we gave to gods
