new moon


there’s not a speck
of moon out there
tonight

no sliver
no silver
no banana moon
to make me smile

yet
in that blackness
stars shine bright
that can’t be seen in
the moon’s half light

the full moon seduces me
I prowl I howl
I revel in his beauty
and monthly mourn his passing

but this
this blackest of all nights
relieves my restless heart
and lets me sleep at peace
under stars I might have
missed
