Poems: Eclipse


The day after you left
the Moon was eclipsed by the Earth's shadow.

I did not see
the Moon disappear.

I was busy
being the shadow.

I did not see
the Moon's face covered
as you covered mine.

When you kissed me
in mystery
I was discovered.

That day of the eclipse
I started my cycle

swift and red
just a spot

-a flow that stopped
and then began again
when I got your letter.
