i am no longer an active speaker of toki pona for two reasons:
life is not simple
the language appropriates words from the languages of colonized people

Oops. I misread this (there is a moral there about idee fixe as well as a plea for marking off final PPs). But still:
A vocative followed by an imperative offers two possibilities: 'jan Luka o, o lukin' or 'jan Luka o lukin' (no comma). The latter is also coming to be used for the optative, which used to be 'o jan luka li lukin'
The tp word for stars in the relevant sense is 'mun', so I suppose that this is 'utala mun' and eventually 'ma mun' for all the inhabited planets of the galaxy.
Still very nice indeed.
