Rookie (JANUARY / Rome Italy)

Moonset At Copalis Beach


The moon slips off
her nightgown
into the Pacific
cold
Naked
her white flames
trail behind her

We have come to watch her ritual
undressing, the milky
whiteness of her belly
round & beautiful
The silk of her lightning
loosed on the sea
On the silver
she spills over us

She is full of seduction
this moon-woman
Her likeness
a brighter burn
in the deep mirror
as she presses
breast against shore
Unfurling the nipples of tide
Folding them back into her
Slowly, like a last breath

Slowly, before she drinks
the bronze glass
of the edged-copper
far off
Like a Juliette,
knowing
she soon will
darkle down
beyond the deep
