it's late enough when i go for walks now that i can see scorpio rising. the light pole down the block has been fixed, which makes the sky harder to see, but you can't miss scorpio's dazzling companion, jupiter. jupiter outshines even the red heart of the scorpion, antares. and sweet saturn is setting, waltzing in counterpoint to rising jupiter. the dark air is so cold i can see my breath and frost glitters on the cars.
