THE ASTRONOMER

             for Michael Benedikt

 

At 13, you traveled from one junior high to another reading your paper on astronomy

that caused your teachers to want other students in the City to hear your  paper they considered so brilliant from someone your age, or any age—

You tell me this after lovemaking years later, tell me that giving that “lecture” gave

you even more pleasure than  reading your poems at the Library of Congress

 

Tonight, five months after your death that I am still recovering from

(and obviously you never will),

I look at the night sky and wonder, my love, if your inquisitive spirit

is soaring through the planets like the mind astronaut you always were
