staying on task

..

just ask
the moon. she’s got a job
to do, too. wax. wane. balance
the tide tables. keep that ocean
stable.

stars?
they’re the thumbtacks
that hold up the sky.
(they don’t take smoke
breaks, or wonder why.)

i’d like
to have that kind
of shine in whatever
i might
do.

  1. Haha! I love the idea of stars as thumbtacks holding up the sky…

    The ending made me swoon. Also, I like the idea of the moon having a Job (you know, from the Bible). ~A suffering husband to support, in other words.
