Or maybe to region here means

what’s defined by that light
we admit might be the deep

& subtle pull we want to stop
wanting to turn away from.

Tonight that sky—made
welcome & stranger all at once

—in every direction faced made
a different sky, & how nearly

impossible whatever forecast
become fact or passed on by.

So, we’ll surrender by not looking
away or anywhere else, give this

place its well-lit hours arcing
above us, that hue-made dome.
