Cratered Flirt

Road to sky to moon
My double knotted shoes
My puffing breath
My narrow view
Of the super blue blood lunar eclipse moon

Nothing needs help from me
The road remains reliably horizontal
The sky dutifully accommodates clouds, stars and wishes
The moon endlessly phases, manipulates and inspires
Such a sneaky, dusty rock

The shifty thing
It drew me out
Laced me up
To watch the jumbo, color enhanced, star studded eclipse
Only to slowly and defiantly pull a cloudy blanket
Over the show
What a cratered flirt

Janus probably smiled
The last day of his month
Granting a vision of bright to cloudy
Over this suburban asphalt
Asphalt, a kind of transition
An abstract concrete
Aggregate to moon rock
Potholes to craters
Gutters to riverbeds
Manholes to volcanoes

Don’t we all run
In our own world
A private satellite
Hatted and mittened for
Transition and tide?

Just remember
A lunar eclipse is
The same moon
Teasing us all.
