mother moon (2)

mother moon
april 15, 1971

at least i found u approachable, mother
closer than skin; distant beyond the reach of
measured arms – like the moon, nurturing
from some far off place.

in my youthful nights, i would cry out to
u, afraid in my private darkness. u
would come, always, bearing yr broad,
yellow face to place against mine.
