Far Out

Beyond the dark cartoons
Are darker spaces where
Small cloudy nests of stars
Seem to float on air.
 
These have no proper names:
Men out alone at night
Never look up at them
For guidance or delight,
 
For such evasive dust
Can make so little clear:
Much less is known than not,
More far than near.
