starry skies beckon
this boy to sneak out
out of his bunk-bed
out of his room
down to the grassy fields
and to wonder at
his place in it all

his Batman pajamas
have muddied cuffs
that leave telltale marks
on the kitchen floor
where he shrinks a piece
of pumpkin pie
imperceptibly, he hopes

muddied cuffs
pumpkin’d tummy
starry eyes
and starry mind
the boy crawls up
and into his bunk
there to dream
