Man in the Moon Outed -------------------------------------------
the unusual seems to want tender
beneath a full moon breakable
a careful cloud scuttles across its anxious
angels flying hushed tonight
when the time is compliant they will bring their fragile
deposit careful kisses upon his clever
before they leave they take them back blushing
the moon tames the clouds and shines naughtily
a tear in the corner of his precious
man in the moon has removed himself from the closet
telling the stars curious and cleverly
that he waits
for the cow that jumped over the moon
As it turns out, I had mistaken this poem for another by remembering solely the last line!
Either way, both were memorable for me...
Currently wondering if I've got a thing for the lunar idea.
The rhythm of this was almost suspenseful, if that makes sense. I wanted to go on; figure it out. The ending struck me at a personal level, yet I'm not sure why. It's not like I'm one for reasoning, anyway, but you know.
It played like a movie - a really interesting animation composed by snippets, rather than a time-line. It continued to time-skip and you had no idea where you were at till it closed up and suddenly it all made sense.
I just thought you could use a word or two in case you had any questions about the reader's perspective.
Enjoyed it, overall.
