Moonshot

Moonshot

The other night
making my way home
a large creamy moon
distended in the sky

not quite full
in fact on the wane
and bulging gravidly
as though about to burst
and pour its light
across the face of the earth

but it has no light
and knows nothing
of love or our hopes
or dreams though
it rules the tides
of our emotions
