KEEP IT SECRET (“Under A Common Moon” – August Postcard Poems 2021)

“So, my darling, how do you think the Moon feels about her Dark Side?”

The Moon pockets her Dark Side

safely away

A secret tintype of its flawed

naked self

Flaunting instead

its burlesque version

garish in the footlights

adored in reflected spotlight

A mirage of beauty

veiled by the Night

But with wig and makeup off

the mirror

tells her otherwise
