City Mirrors Sky When You Look From Up on High

Marc Latham’s latest Folding Mirror poem looks up and down as the light leaves the Earth with the sun, and describes the mirror effect that can emerge as city lights are turned on at the same time that stars start to sparkle in the sky.
Between City and Sky, Let Your Mind Fly
in nocturnal sky
stars shine eternally
in milky way zodiac signs
looking like a climbing frame
sunset on plateau ridge
city streets resemble landing strips
for ancient gods or aliens
never embering neon
on valley floor
