Focus on the Moon

by Mary E. Lowd

Hold the moon
Fold yourself around it
Surrounding narrow shoulders
With a cloak of shine—
A sheen to defeat & beat back
The crushing weight of a lack
Of support in the wide open sky
Yes, you can still rise
Above the heart-attack that distracts
With noise & nays
From better ways
