2 A.M. (THE MOON)

WILSON JOSEPHSON

 
 
Proposition One:
Your throat is the moon.
It’s got an irresistible attraction
&, like the tides,
I feel queasy.
 
Proposition Two:
Your smile is the moon.
At night, it keeps me from sleeping.
 
Proposition Three (Final Proposition):
You are the moon
and I am on earth.
 
It’s reassuring to know
we orbit the sun
side by side.
