HALF MOON

I

Half moon
day moon

my better half
not here
not there

my better half
where is she

II

waking up
to no one
beside me
i’m beside
myself
with a pang
of anxiety
how do I live
for the moment
the moment
so dark

III

the dark sandals
outside her screen door
can only mean a guest
a guest for the night
they seem to be
size 9 or 10
much bigger than mine
I must tip toe away
and make believe
I didn’t see the sandals
pretend I don’t know a thing
and I don’t
