Gibbous moon

devoured by our shadow,

gibbous heart

quicker than moons to wane.

High moon or rising,

night's center.

Eccentric heart

tipped sideways like a mango.

Waxing moonlight,

douser

of ever farther

constellations;

waning heart

douser

of brief

and briefer hopes.

Full moon,

fool heart:

masters

of the one night stand.
