11.02.22: Twiglet #265

The Moon

was never meant
to take the night alone.

Stars drift through the shallows
of its black plate, and the air

soft as the back of thighs,
and dark as a square of night.

And the moon
turned its face away, and stared

deep into earth’s mirrored water,
waves turning like pages.

  1. Imagine seeing the moon all alone on a cloudless night. I never did until I read this and then I thought, wow, that would be amazing.
