November Full Moon

Tonight, the full moon is my lover,

Traveling with me from BART to my home,

A tangle of silvery light,

Winding it’s way like cigarette smoke,

Shining around my body.


Moon rays float down,

Wrap around my arms and cheeks,

White lace, white ribbons,

A wispy coolness,

Holding me with her radiance.
