Poetry at the Post: Starry Night or 18 Stars Who Swear by Juicing

The Stars Are
BY SAMUEL MENASHE

The stars are
Although I do not sing
About them—

Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh

Today’s NAPOWRIMO prompt is to write about the stars.

18 Stars Who Swear by Juicing by Alice-Catherine “Star” Jennings

It’s funny, you know, how when you search
for something online, you think you’ll get one
thing but then you get another. I googled “stars”—

thinking constellations: Andromeda, Perseus
or Canes Venatici—the hunting dogs—or even
“Starry Night” by the famous painter but not “18 Stars

Who Swear by Juicing,” or “22 Celebs Crazy for Cross Fit,”
or “25 Stars Who’ve Run a Marathon.” (Guess that’s how
they fit into the “10 Cutest Outfits Worn by TV Stars.”)

Next is the “30 Stars Who Left the Mormon Church.”
Ryan Gosling is one but wait a minute! He’s also in
one of the “51 Movies With Stars Before They Were Famous”

but he’s not one of the “55 Who Love Pot.” Bill Clinton’s
on this list. Didn’t he claim he only tried it once
(without inhaling)? Ah! I’m getting closer to the real

stars or at least the blue sphere of the fixed ones.
