A quick survey of an Atlas of the Night Sky reveals

I am a meridian       marking my place above (+) or
below (-) the horizon       the stars (do I have to use
the word canopy? does it have to come to that?) say

wherever I stand is the centre of the universe
the zenith always directly above my head       (the
surest path to heaven?)      forcing me to look up

the definition of apogee       (the most distant point
from an object being orbited
)       and so I stand
still       cataloguing activity      (celestial-wise).
