Moon in Leo

Photo by Samuel Zeller


of the bow-wasped beauty –
whose cloak Artemis tore into two:

Where has your missing fisherman gone?

I see only his delicate prow,

a broken line that weaves
delicate drops

in between stars;

smattering o’er
half-frozen footprints in the ice.

Alas! Hesperus and Mercury

are nowhere to be found
in this sweltering heat

that wilts the primrose;

the firefly will be no friend of mine
in this mourn-draped evening.
