Remember to Look at The Stars by Gwil James Thomas

Remember to Look at The Stars

Today,
we
lost
a beacon of genius
in an era where
blinding ignorance
is celebrated.

Now,
my tawdry brain is left
with nothing but gratitude,
for you schooling me on
the deceptive simplicity of us
just having lived on earth,
through all it’s
beautiful impossibility –
before the dark
finally
swallows
light.
