Look Wait See Get

.

moon through Ryder clouds
their charred centers bright rims

black treeline
morning silhouette

moon howls:
look
……..    wait
………………….     see
………………………………. get

but the silhouette’s not
impossibly dense,

not as difficult to penetrate
as knotted past:
love
……….    hurt
………………………. be
……………………………     regret

frame:

column left  which I built,
lintel, roof rake above,
house wall opposite, 
concrete floor beneath

moon, having thrown its cover off,
sits upon the bed-edge
of the treeline

………………….. improbable

but here on this patio,
………………….. proof—

………………….. yet…
