Imagine This

.
moon

thing shaped like a dish,
saucer moonspan wide in nightsky
laden with milk for a cat
a gesture of someone kind
who’s never more than this and
ever less than that

sun up,
moon scats

have you noticed that,
in a miraculous way fully backed by science,
the eyes of truth will always stare you down
indifferent to how you may
hate a fact
