Contemplating the bright side of light pollution - if that's possible.


As stars fade away
behind urban lights,
and constellations
receive their last rites,

Some global franchise
will twinkle the nights
with many new kinds
of bright satellites.

These lanterns on high
will promote big brands,
and morph with the trends
most eyeballed by fans.

A pleasing outline,
of Hello Kitty,
with flower in hair?
Totally creepy.
