“Who’s your best friend?”
asked the moon.
has limited
my choices.

But now is the time,
to let the answer
interrogate itself.
“Do you ever ask the sky;
which of your stars shine
the brightest?”
Can it ever decide
which one’s the best?

Perhaps it is evident;
it neither discriminates,
nor it loses the count. Ever.
