S T A R E S (from april 08)

March 19, 2011

that moon is a cliche’
for howling wolves.
lunar muse pulls away at;
a tide, all to write all,
to draw in a cave.

a young man must walk.
Late night. streetlight to streetlight
blurry bleak alleys, not just black, just dark.
It watches..wit nesses
pushfollows him home.

An old man must watch.
Late night. from his door down his driveway
blurily peaks always
up to his moonscape
cloudblanket backs his bloom
queen anne’s lace against the face of his
luminous Orchid.

    beautiful write – you had me from the first line – the moon is a cliché for howling wolves – we have to be so careful when we write about the moon, right? always in danger that it becomes flat – clichéed – meaningless. but really like what you’ve done with it

    “a young man must walk.

    romantic little lines, yet masculine.
    I love them.
