How to Hide the Milky Way

Sunlight is simplest,
one star overruling the rest.

Between dusk and dawn,
customary methods serve:

fire, fog, fumes, full moon
to flood the river of stars.

Or stay within city limits,
shielded by electric glare.

Avoid wilderness, desert,
the star-strewn ocean.

If all else fails, look down.
Heed not his siren call.
