Solar System Inquisition

Even if a giant hand descended

from the sky

or a cherrypicker levitated

into the night

to snuff or suck electricity

from streetlamps,

we could still navigate under the moon,

I whisper.

But did you ever wonder if the moon

feels hurt

by earth dominating the sun’s attention?

You wrinkle your face and reply,

The earth is only one planet out of nine

 and there are more than 146 moons

swooning and drifting. 

Only Mercury has the front seat.

It’s not personal, little moon.

It’s not personal, little moon

I smile under my breath,

stumbling through huckleberries,

breathless and dirty,

waiting for your hand to catch mine.
