Moon

This is me in your car
Looking at the moon
One of the few things we share
Her icy fullness a natural mirror of our strange familiarity
When the sparks rose from the fire
And the music played
I saw it peek through the branches
You asked me why I was laughing
It’s just that sometimes I feel happiness

No

No
I was not made for this world
With its aggression
Its speed
Self-interest
And bad driving
Where is kindness?
Not here
Basic goodness?
Buried so deep
And no time or energy or inclination
To dig it up
I am weak in the eyes of this world
Wet around the edges
Voice peeled back
Raw with frustration
Sorry I’m late
I stopped on the bridge
To look at the moon for a bit
Catch my breath
