Poetry Reading – “In the Second-Hand Light of the Crescent Moon (Left Crescent)”

Originally published April 16, 2018, this piece was the first in a three-part set for my first “collection”, the “Crescent Collection”, a series of themed pieces based on my (grounded) lunar explorations.

“In the Second-Hand Light of the Crescent Moon (Left Crescent)” – Recorded 3/11/2021 – Auroraboros – Objects, and the Distance Between Them

Part of a three-part set.

I do not always know
How to show
My affection

I need so badly
Not just to touch
But to feel
Not just to see
But to know

I desperately wish
I could show you
What this means
What I mean
When I say
I would do
To be there
To be where
You are

You are…
To me
A source unknown
A force unimpeded
To pervade
To prevail
Against all odds
Against all that I have done
Against all that I am
The dirty dark
The cleansing glow
One in the same
Too close to see
That what exists
What was
Will always be
One in the same
In the second hand light of
The crescent moon
