Show Moon

speaker 4.

look out your window the moon is huge
but not bigger-than-life, smaller than that
though big enough to make life take a look,
to admire its midnight sun with hint of rouge
upheld in a mosh-pit of trees, naked limbs
a dark mesh across a field upon a sky of blue-grey steel
which, as long as nights last and days begin,
will be the place this moon plays, stage rear,
then up and front as it climbs a starry scrim
and down again —and life applauds
before it disappears
