Liverpool Lights

Stumbling out of the planetarium
Blinking
The memory of vast star-lit spaces on dome
Fading
As we glimpse the lights of Liverpool down there
Spreading
In the street, the lamps in rows
Shining
The shops with their shop fronts
Glaring
The quiet streets of home windows
Glowing
Liverpool a light pattern
Singing
Reflecting starlight
Eternal
