A Night, Like So Many Others


We're losing our grasp on the moon.
It slips each year farther away,
fraction by fraction.

Uncountable centuries from now
I'll look into the maelstrom of heaven
and search in vain for its cold surface among

the blasting suns, a child dressed in the
pale white sheet of the multitudes
that surround it, and I'll sleep that night

as I've slept for an eon or more, enfolded
in the ebb of gravity, clutching at stellar dust,
ill-prepared for the astonishment of awakening.
