Recording memory.

We went looking for shooting stars.
We found stray cats and empty streets to lie in.
We walked down sidewalks and through memories
Beneath a clear night sky dashed by clouds,
a spray of stars and a nearly full moon.

The air only carried our whispers,
as we lay there in the white noise.
