English

i did not see the
stars tonight. i blamed
the city. i blamed the
light. i blamed the
weather. i blamed the
fog. i blamed pollution
and i blamed the smog.

i thought, where did we all
go so wrong? i thought, maybe
i should write a sad song. i
thought, oh lord, why is the
world so stuck-up? but, in fact:
i did not see the stars,
because i did not look up.


In which I read my own.
