Star Gazing

the stars 
a cliché of literature and film -
the backdrop of romance 

i believe they wink 
chalked up in the sky 
yellow of colour 
and awkward in shape 

they litter the place 
light arrives to wipe 
them off the blackboard 

but i am not certain -
have i seen a night of stars in full?

surely i would remember 
something so - 
what?
