police car's headlights
the young man wears a hoodie
at night while black

taken from my bed
with my mouth covered ...
the Indian child
sobbing inside this Elder

drops out of its flock --
a child migrant's stare
earthshine dimming the light in my love's eyes
FYI: The Weather Network, Oct. 6, 2021: Earthshine' is dimming and that's bad news for the climate
Earthshine is one of the most spectacular sights in our night sky. Yet, this astronomical phenomenon is slowly vanishing, and this is providing us with a new warning sign for the climate...Earthshine results from Earth's albedo. Of all the incoming sunlight that reaches Earth, roughly one-third gets directly reflected back into space by bright cloud tops and icy surfaces.
