The Moon is drowning

The moon is drowning the stars it pushes themunder into the darkness they cannot breathethey are flailing the moon boasts to my shadowhow powerful is the moon how great its light

My shadow nods and calls the moon father thoughit acknowledges also the existence of othersheadlights are like little moons father my shadow saysthey pass like waves in a dark ocean

Father moon becomes angry and threatensI can maroon you shadow I can trap you in darknessyour strength comes from my own the little moonsare fleeting like foam on a darkened sea

My shadow fears the night as it fears deathbut it remembers the moon’s strength is from anothermy shadow wants the headlights like an oceanmight want the moon as a seducer as a lover
