Distance or Time

The stars visible from this Bronx roof
are few and far between
but still
there are so many more
than when I grew up
in Manhattan.

Is it the borough
or time
that has made such a difference
in the night?
Does it matter?

I have a Dipper above me
guiding me free to see
a clear and cloudless sky.
I have a roof upon which I can spy
this heaven
something I’d never had access to
all those years ago
in the southern land
of Manhattan.
Looking up,
I’d say things here uptown
have been definitely looking up.
