Steps

The worm moon — on such a clear morning, even her robins are visible.

Steps

“When she rests in the apple tree —

                            that’s when we’ll harvest the moon.”

 

       And they took great care with the ladder,

                     not to

              make a sound.

 

“Son? Do you see her face? Why are you looking down?”

 

       And that is what he remembers,

                            this day in the burial ground.

 

 
       (for a friend whose father has passed on)
