Ode to the blood moon

No comments

Oh entrancing she in silver light
shines down
what dreams we see are orchestrated
by her stoic, pallid face

and in ten hours hence
a fence will rise
the earth’s girth blocks
her lover’s light
the sun

and so in trembling rage
she’ll pick a different hue
a bloody menstruation
to her face the earth will glue

Diana, Luna, Phoebe
and the million other names that I don’t know
give blessing to the ones tonight
who feast upon your crimson show

we sing, we dance, we chant
we bow to you exalted queen
please lend this solo scribe
a scrap of your immense esteem
