Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia

Carrie Fisher, aka Princess Leia, died today. A child of the 1970’s and 1980’s, I was, and am, a tremendous Star Wars fan. It still encourages me to reach and wonder. Thank you, Star Wars. Thank you, princess.

Last Night

for Carrie Fisher

Did you see the stars?
Or the cold, black void
where each fire rests,

each bright fleck
where boys gaze
on summer nights,

immersed in cricket song,
wielding flashlights,
fantastic swords,

luster and shine?
Did you see the stars?
