If There Is No Moon - Poem by Atef Ayadi

If there is no moon,

How possible could it be?

Your lips
Won’t wobble
Far from your chin.
It will be only a gazer
Cold words
In a lost deserted Cancun.

If there is no moon,

You won’t irrupt
And spill out
Any of
Your hot and angry lavas,
But a
Liquid of
Crystallized feelings;
They awake
And then swoon.

If there is no moon,

And oceanic waves
Won’t crash
Against my chest
No flood,
No touch down,
No damage done,
No hurricane, and
No typhoon.

If there is no moon,
Words come flat
Your kisses
Lose its own cycles
Between a croissant
And a full moon.

If there is no moon,

Tears will be
A crack of memories
On the ice
Lying strewn.

If there is no moon,

God and goddess,
Supreme Deity, and
Will be
A song
Between Saturn’s
And the Martian's dunes.
