You may be surprised
I like you,
southern fly,
but I'll explain to you why.

Last winter
a your little sister, a northern fly
(forgotten by the astronomers)
came from the sky
into my apartment,
becoming my only honest comrade
for that time period.

And I am a good friend
for all the minor constellations.
