Cosmic Impacts

“I am the moon-

in an endless cycle

filled with light

or distant to a darkness,

full or never present,

and everything in between.

My story is marked by cosmic impacts-

of the comets and asteroids

which have crashed into me,

chipping away at my mass,

disturbing my balance.”

“But why remain?”

“I guess because

in my moments of darkness

I know what it is like

to be pushed away.”


but you are not a baseline,

for you would not inflict that level

of violence or reckless harm-

so why remain

to be in the line of fire?”
