"You've got the sun, you've got the moon, and you've got the Rolling Stones." Keith Richards

For Kevin, the history teacher...

The moon hangs low
on its fishing line,
dangling at the end of a hook,

episodically close,
dressed in full ball gown,
designed to tempt the nightlife,

those unique souls
whom show themselves
but once a month, suddenly wakened,

celestially vibrant,
cyclically alive, unknowingly
salivating from the influence of the lunar bait.
