Changing Face Moon

New Moon, August 19, 2020


Palpitation palimpsest

layers overlaid, no rest


to ride in circles, so boring

again: just this, just this


art & nature as orphans

stories channeling themselves

into being


now remember when crests were younger

a face of sun wavering, irregular


contractions in the night, wet awake

chalk perimeter, clay river bank


our vows invisible stars

quick-to-see, long seen


notes beneath the words

drawings around the vision

twins, a shield, a golden conch

their eyes’ laughter echoing

on all luminous sides


the song of water.
