by Andrei Dorian Gheorghe

Strong enemies around you,
mythical horse:
Canis Major, Hydra, Orion, Canis Minor ...
But you keep them in a respectable distance
through your long and sharp horn.

Only the celestial equator
pierces through you,
But your wounds are dressed
by small and generous clusters.
