the moon and Venus

lovely moon, lovely Venus in the sunset
so many friendly spirits passing me in the streets
the disease of not wanting is here
and the other, of wanting too much

the moon and Venus are beautiful
and so is everyone's life
beginning, middle and end
so much in the middle, so little at the end

foreseeable end, unforeseeable time
when we leave everyone behind
who hasn't gone ahead
tonight, Venus will set before the moon

the celestial dance never changes
and always offers new wonders
why do the lights in the sky matter,
why do we?  And yet we do
