Anecdote of a Star

Where West meets East Main Street there is a park.
And in the corner of that park I hid a chair.
And in that chair I sat, as would a jar,
Waiting for the theater of stars to appear.

So through the folds of trees I peered, until
Some clouds of midnight blue covered my lids.
And lightning lit those cerebral walls.

Until they passed I stood and thought
Was I watching them or were they watching me?
