I asked six other poets east to west across the isthmus of Tamaki Makaurau (Auckland) to look for the stars of Matariki as they appeared in the northeastern sky June-July. This is the result, another kind of star cluster. Thanks to them all, and to Selina Tusitala Marsh and Tim Page for the use of 'A Samoan Star Chant for Matariki' from Selina's collection Fast Talking PI (Auckland UP, 2009).
