February Selection #5

Of full moons
Bombing down
La Habra Boulevard
headed east
fueled by
a boatload of guacamole
and two margaritas, doubles
My mom behind the wheel
of a great vintage Chrysler wagon
She says
"My doctors tell me
I've only got two years to live . . . "
Interrupted by the moon
as seen through the suburban
Los Angeles basin atmosphere
"Oh my god! Look at the moooooon!"
Eighty billion tons
suspended in the crystal
winter sky
Enough oh's in her "moon"
for six months worth
of full moons
