Flickering enchantment. Chase it. You won’t believe it.
Gone by the time you arrive. Tantalised by the promise, unfulfilled.
Bright celestial body. Constant. Mapped.
Captured by another. A butterfly displayed in a jewelled case.
Fixed in place never to be shifted. Right there, but not here.
Stuck on the equator. Between the Poles. Magnetic opposites attract.
