Mother Moon Takes a Coffee Break

 

..

You’re waning again,
oh,
half-done moon,
half-won moon.

Straining again
to
borrow enough light
sorrow enough flight

to take a larger bite
of
this broken sky,
this tokened why.

You take it black
with
a milky way pour,
don’t ask for more.

Then you’ll be back
in
full fat glow,
sky-wandered know.
