  You could have a big dipper   

Vondelpark by Hanna Abi Akl

in late afternoons

we liked to hide in the park

under the black alder trees

and smoke our cigarettes

watching the sky sink

into point blank

& when night came

for us like a deathmark

ominously gliding over our shadows

we knew

we were the greatest lovers

in an unfit & blasphemous universe.
