New Moon

All the women in the world
cried at the same time
one day

The moon looked on and
was bounced around from
tear to tear

All the men sat stunned
sincerely in awe of such powerful

This eternal sadness rang out
rivaling the weight of glaciers
and wind’s speeds

All the children gazed up
at their weeping mothers
in pure fear

Those who were built to comfort,
the women, gazed down and
still sobbed

This simultaneous howl
bewitched the planet
refracting light

All the women cried and time stopped
and the men and children feared
and the moon danced
