"Searching by Starlight"
Ndidi Franklin has her own ways
of seeking the Nebula's Heart.
She leafs through archaic pages
and scrolls through text files,
making meticulous notes.
When she gets tired of the dry,
academic references then
she turns to pop culture to relax.
Starlight shines through
the thick windows of the lounge,
but these are not the stars
that she is looking for.
The Nebula's Heart is the star
she seeks to steer by, a spark
in the darkness, its significance
hidden by symbols and innuendo.
Ndidi knows it when she sees it,
though, and slowly pieces together
a pattern from the laughing comedies
and the solemn dramas.
Not just a pattern: a map.
