December Selection #2

Lunar Eclipse
- - - for Esperanza

Winter's dark, dead of the night

on the cold Solstice.

Not yet dark, the full moon and I walk the dog

as it, the moon, disappears in slices of my shadow, the earth's shadow, our shadow---

mine and the dog's and yours, my friend,

six days dead and three buried.

The moon over your grave disappears

and will reappear
like your love.

like light on this now-dark night.
