Mary in the Moon

An apparition:

Egg-shaped moon,

Haloed, with soft, cloud-prism edges

Dissipate; alone now.

Resplendent shining white,

Holy lasers lacerate

In four, six, twelve directions.

Bare fingerlings reach, sprawl

Whilst man-laid brick outlines the bottom edges.

Hail Holy Queen,

Lady of night shadows’ sorrows.

Pray for us, Mother of God.

Mary in the Moon, tonight.
