Astronomy 101

Venus setting on my right
in a glorious sunset
the moon rising on my left
peeking through the clouds

I see them both through the buildings
until the bridge over the canal
Venus, now bright in a dark sky
the full moon still hidden in the clouds

What mean for me these portents
and the week off I have been promised
the future is for astrologers and sages
while I enjoy these celestial bodies
