clawing at the grounded moon #35 By Darren C. Demaree

clawing at the grounded moon #35

each day is kidnapped by my pursuit to carve my whole given name into the moon rock i’m leaving a trail my children have started to follow me they keep adding hearts they keep adding cat ears i’ve kept my lettering medallion thin as always i am fattened up by my children who see the moon as a new friend who see the moon as a neighbor who have explained to me over and over again that the moon has no business here among us isn’t it pretty isn’t it pretty isn’t it pretty
