From Moon to Moon

“In our village, folks say God crumbles up the old moon into stars.”
from One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich.
by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

Freeze one note
of song
into a mountain view
learning to watch
the hoax
of numbering
days
from moon to moon
watching it crumble
as you tell yourself
glorious stories
hypnotic and thick
astonishing your own view

full into new

Z

for Eugi’s Weekly Prompt: Wolf Moon

  1. Watching the moon crumble — I never thought of it that way. Z, your vantage on the roof gives you a distinctive voice.

    “learning to watch
    the hoax
    of numbering
    days
    from moon to moon”

    Chicago playing in the background; both the city (God help her) and the band. Do any of us (by current reckoning) really know what time it is? Great poem, Z
