Your moons

Your two pale moons in our bedroom

each outdo the sallow solitary moon in

the sky, but like her they are most lovely

at their full: uncover them for me not by

halves in the coyness of a low-cut dress

nor an open blouse, but let me see them

full, moving freely like orbs that signal joy

to come.
