Moon,
watch over me
from your highest crescent,
cradling me as
the night slips through
your pockmarked shadows.
Do you grieve? Knowing
that your wholeness
will be sliced away?

- Maybe
it is the reason you
find yourself
complete again.

Perhaps
you wane
only because you know
somewhere
across the earth
- in the ink
that muffles the stars,
you'll find
the self
that you were
missing.
