From the book:

After Dinner Mints

Francis, would you know a star
if you saw one?
Would you call it by name,
sit silently, await its reply?

Would you welcome its wisdom?
Let its message slide
from your tongue
onto your lips
in the tenor of a memory
that rises
from the deepest part
of your nature?
     Taurus, I would tell you
     has seven sisters,
     each one with her own secret.

Would you believe me, Francis?

And would you understand
that my metaphor
is purely symmetry
laced within
a theory,
like a blueprint
between the pages
of our biographies.
