Bowie told us of a Star Man waiting in the sky
The Bible of a star that shepherds and wise men followed
US military vehicles and planes bore a white star emblem
Russians and others adopted the same in red
But this orange background is different
Unfamiliar and of unknown meaning

From behind an eye stares out
Fixing us with an enquiring gaze
Seeming to dare us to respond
To a question not yet asked
Maybe to burn in confusion
Consumed by orange flame

Shakespeare wrote of star crossed lovers
Ireland rose under a Starry Plough
Every Hollywood idol bears
The same title
But this orange background is different
Unsettling and of uncertain significance.
