Shooting Stars

Shooting stars

they’re way up there

likely as not you’ll hit one

or maybe that’s not your aim.

You just want to let off


If you accidently hit a star

it would certainly fall

to earth, deader than

a doornail.

Sometimes they fall–

free fall–without

a shot fired.

They’re spending

their last seconds

in earth’s atmosphere,

or if they make it

to land, a new home

in the ground they’re

treated to.
