lonely sentinels
reach up to the midnight moon
fair face their lodestone
pale, captivating goddess
who hears their nocturnal prayers

‘neath the silent, multitudinous stars
in the still of an amaranthine night
I howl at the face of the gibbous moon
wail and curse and scream
to the only thing that will listen

Strawberry Moon

Strawberry Moon

blushes in crepuscular sky.

Strawberry Moon

wordlessly casts magical runes

upon starved anthropophagi.

Hunger will be galvanized by

Strawberry Moon.

Blue Moon

fog falls
on early morn’
spreads periwinkle shawl
on the new day Blue Moon has born—
