PET ROCK – MORE PROSE THAN POETRY (“Under A Common Moon – August Postcard Poems 2021)

“Oh, my darling, please invent a Moon Myth just for me.”


long ago

when the Earth was very young

when Life was just beginning

to consider a tentative stretch

of its atoms

The Galaxy was vast

and the Earth was lonely

It had not yet

pinpointed the demarcation

between alone

and lonely

That woiuld come with

the Mammals

The long dark nights

were achingly lonely

But then

in one monotonous revolution

A stone appeared

close enough to the Earth

that it could reach out

and catch it

“I shall call you Moon,”

Earth said

squealing as the Sun

approved the adoption

in an unexpected array

of brilliance
