The United States Versus The Constellations

The difference between them

is that the United States
is a density of data
and there are many ways to parse it
into patterns.  Everyone
defends their own interpretation
to the death and beyond, while

each constellation
is a paucity of data;
we share interpretations
of them; no one ever dies about
whether we call it Orion
or not. Also, everyone

looks up to the constellations.
