Midnight at Noon and Morning at Midnight

Midnight at Noon and Morning at Midnight

Just as the moon

blocks the radiation

of our closest star

and

we are plunged into darkness,

so also do we obscure

the view

of

our baby sister

the moon‘til we cannot see

her face

at all,

leaving us

in

mo(u)rning at midnight.

*****

As we eclipse each other

we are either left

blind

or alone.

What is cryptic and occult now

only increases desire

for illumination

as tension and temptation

compound and confront

time with impatience.

*****

If I open my mouth

to explain what this means,

I spoil

your joy

of discovery,

even if it is as plain

as the reflection of your own face

in my eyes by the light of the moon.
