PATIENT ORB
(6/15/16)


the Moon
moves shadows
unseen
through the darkness
of space

shining brightly
at times
but casting
no warmth

witnessing
the blue body
floating above
its horizon

the Moon
remembers
when it too
was a planet

knowing
in billions
of years
that the Earth
will look
much different

more like
a nearby
Venus

the Moon
continues
its orbit

smug
in the sureness
that it will always
look
fairly much
the same
