Best Poem of Melanie Simms

Moon Ode (For Congressman Sam Farr)

Shall I trust the moon?
She flirts behind purple clouds
Veiling her luminous face
Like a naughty trickster
In a bad moon-mood.

I want to tell her to
'take a leap, '
And she does
Over the next cloudy fence
Until finally,
Reminded of her manners
Floats across my view
With a graceful smile
And offers her
Apology.
