mOOn

moon had a dark side

–a secret moon barely admitted

moon wanted to be

sun

–at the crux of it—

moon new tides

depended on pull

waxed on about

night light

to rival North Star

full of self-importance

it made people lunatics,

–and that wasn’t the half of it

aware of spin and

perception of equal-size,

on the surface

moon appreciated

borrowed shine,

but deep down,

moon missed earth—

missed revolutions it knew, and same

substance.
