Defining Moon Glow

The moon was neither

voiced into creation

nor was it defined.

 

It was just parted

from the dark ink

of God’s voice.

 

Alphabets don’t

exist on dark vellum

just illuminated papyrus.

 

God doesn’t have the power

to banish those things

that have always existed.

 

He can’t create the perfect night

just pull crows out of it,

really, the simplest of magic tricks.

 

The small orifice below the cheekbones

exists to project the whiteboard

scribblings of the human mind.

 

Man is sad because he knows

that his words and thoughts

fall short of God’s magnificent language.

 

The moon witnesses what

is below and above its light

and keeps both their secrets.
