The Queen Moon

What do you think it is about the moon and the stars 

What do you mean 

People have been intoxicated with it for years ... Celestial bodies 

I think it's because it's so consistent 
but it's still not yours 
You know it's coming every night 
but you still can't grab it 

It's so peaceful 
Is it because it's beyond us
Is it because it's beyond our capacity for wonder 
Or is it because that's one thing we never have to worry about 

Why don't people get married 
underneath it 
Too much gold 

"Make it epic."

But it is epic; as old as time.
Street lamp of the ancients.
Pure, divine.

Helicopters shine 

Poetry in 2015:
Keats in front of a Burger King.

In the shadows
