LITTLE CRESCENT MOON

The crescent moon wanes

slowly turning

away

into a different place

separated

from the rest of herself.


How does she feel?

That little crescent moon

becoming less and less

of herself

not becoming full again

for several weeks.


I look down

at this metal rectangle

laying before me

it glows

and buzzes

and it makes me wonder

how the little crescent moon

copes with her loss.


"Absence makes the heart grow fonder"

they say

but is that really the truth

does the little crescent moon's

love for her other half

grow

every time

that she loses him?

I empathize

with that little crescent moon

as I touch the screen

of that small metal box

and see two faces glow

glowing with love

because in that picture

I am with

my other half

and we

are very fond

of each other.
