so limited by my experience
trying to know her
is like reading  French poetry
with Google translate

(probably ANY poetry :>)
my moon is waning
returning to the hidden place
where all new moons are born

my moon is waning
and the world hides itself away
in the night

my moon is waning
and I try to remember
all the moonlit moments

my moon is waning
melancholy fills the night
casting shadows of the past

my moon is waning
and I sleep in the belief
the sun rises every day
Waning

nothing stores well

fits in any space
and fills any space

nothing is flexible

perfect for every political speech
and car commercial

nothing is hypoallergenic

completely safe for  people
with allergies and phobias

except oudenophobics
and teen age boys

and old men
nothing
inspired as so many things by cattservant

running down the pipe
home after another Monday
a low energy day after a  hot and sleepless
shiftless weekend

stopped for dinner
at the Burger Barn
worried they must be closed
because the parking spaces were empty

one of those lucky moments
hitting the green lights
showing up just as the construction stop
opens to let your side go

served by a young woman
who hangs out of the window
to hear above the traffic
and use a tiny  shelf to write on

just a burger
expensive but classically good
not some puck from
manufacturing food service

I noticed she had music
tattooed on one arm
and I had to ask
what it was

"Something from Slip Knot
they're a metal band"
I pressed for the title
"People Equal Shit"

I had to laugh
"I'll look it up"
and it reminded me how old I am
and I flashed on how wonderfully young she is

And how I never liked metal
I must be dying
because my life is flashing
before my eyes

in unguarded moments
of mindless commuting
odd bits from disjointed times

lying in a field of buttercups
on a sultry sunny afternoon
invisible as my mother called

closer than I had ever been
to another human being
fumbling the catch

driving down rough pavement
with my wife screaming at every bump
racing to deliver the first child

awkward silence in funerals
warm reassurance on the hill
and awe for the winter moon
