Moon's Untraceable

moon pictures

the shade of your body

beneath a veil:

beautiful and muscular Canada geese

waddling against translucent sheets

two young does bound

over your stomach,

clouds speckled with geese

under the moonlight

trace their flight

awaking to your skin

patterned against

wrinkled pillows

ruffled feathers

behind a blanket of clouds

adolescent deer

stomach to stomach with moonlight

rouse those does beneath

startled flights of geese

reversing shadows below

the moon's untraceable tale
