HUSH (“Under A Common Moon” – August Postcard Poetry 2021)

“Darling, my darling, has the Moon revealed its dreams to you?”

Once

when the Earth was quite old

and I was quite young

The Moon pressed liquid lips

up against

my sleeping ear

More kiss than whisper

voice soft

with the lunago

of secrecy

“I have only one dream

revealed when blue

Tonight, oh my darling, I

tell it to you”

Fish in my veins

Lips sewn in silence

The indentation above them

where Moon placed her finger

before she sighed

“Hush”
