Human life waxes and wanes like the moon, ruminates the poet.
Moon decorates our days and nights
with such fickle faces
perhaps that’s why we weave our songs
and stories with facets of its face …
a face as tied to the tides of time
as our own…virile in its season …
waxing and waning with a precision
we believe does not apply to us
Buts its bald white surface near apex
only calls us liars
as it moves on
