Third June Selection

Funerary Practices 1

I was not aware of the Full Moon

because where I live,

they have a custom of leaving the porch light on overnight

when an apartment empties out

(and they are always emptying out due to people dying or going broke whichever comes first)

like a beacon to local break and enter inscape artists

to come over and steal the sweet nothing that is surely there.

This porch light is like

a 100 katrilliongazillion watt mini moon

that overpowers anything else hanging out in the sky.

It is so bright, that in the morning I have to double check

to make sure it’s sunlight streaming in through the blinds.
