sleep in the dark of the moon

Poem #17 from: A Lizard Life

Back to A Lizard Life – Introduction

he climbed up
on the star-way stair
until he reached the moon

licked both lips
with his broad blue tongue
and he ate her
right out of the sky

in the dark
he curled himself around
tail to nose
he fell into sleep

it was then he saw
that moon
so fair
as a sliver
and a shining light
that grew
and grew

at the full
he awoke at last

in the deep of the drain
just a strange

so pretty

small dream
