September Moon

in ash and hazel i imagine you  
on haunches and howling  
vibrations into thickets of pine  
shooting precisely toward the moon  

that lights your aged face  
with almost freckles  
speckles lips cherry-blue  
and wearily that harvest moon compares her pale
 
to yours  
she is a solemn second place  
 
i inhale images  
of your feet thudding against needles
rain flooding your mop and your shirt  
bravado leaving through worn shoes  
 
i imagine steadying you in a clearing  
turning my back on our modern world  
earth to earth we root in the safety of it  
and again - another moon she is gone
