Moving stars

You say the stars need to realign themselves.
I think the sky is a kaleidoscope –
we can turn and twist it a little,
tap the far end,
and watch constellations rearrange themselves.

If only it was that simple,
but gravity gets in the way,
and there is only so much you can do
about the damned inertia.
