Casting Call

Characters, in alphabetical order:
the astronomer
the sky
the star
the telescope

the astronomer, commands
a quiet respect
with an intelligence curious

the sky, aspires
eternal and fleeting
to stay out of the way

the star, arouses
overwhelming reverence
and adoration, through and through

the telescope, draws
distant beings
closer by magnitude...

Casting call
the director reassures

There are no small parts,
only small actors

clamoring for a role
before even the title is known.
