The moon must laugh at us.
Looking down, a warm orange globe
floating past our fragilities, anger,
our intransigent misconceptions.
Twenty-four hours later, we are
as we were, this month, this year
and last, our cyclical history
silhouetted in the lunar glow.
Pierrot fills the canvas, holding
the harvest moon high and low.
There are no shadows left.
We stand exposed.
