sometimes the moon’s the villain

the sting of the night
rings in your ears
you try to answer
the moon’s calls,
he throws anxiety, like darts
he drapes shadows across
your fears as they roll around
each other in the dark
you wonder if the stars
can help find what you lost

May 16th, 1941 – March 27th, 2015

even the heavens
become glassy eyed when they
see the full moon
a reminder of when you left the
world right in time
but just a little too soon

the kiss

night wears mist like
stockings, she kissed the
moon, sending him
blushing, running after
the sun

heartbreak cafe

i’ll stir up the sweetness
and bitterness
heat biting at my fingertips and spoon,
cream curling like clouds spilled
across the face of the moon

lone traveler

our enchanted reactions
could not have even have begun
to travel the distance –
the moon travels, silently
in the cold, alone

ocean kites

the night takes me
and flies me like a kite
deep in the sea, catching
the current to arrive
to the deepest, darkest
corner inside of what
makes me live, i breathe
with only a single
thread, keeping me
from completely losing
myself inside of my head
and i see the moon washed
up on the coasts of the ocean
beside what is left of me

frontier

sunset stretched
out like deer hide
dipping the fields and
mountains in orange
the violet sky holding up
stars by her fingertips
sending the moon on the
back of the wind
