ALIEN MOON
(10/24/18)


full

a full
week
before
Halloween

hovering
above
the western
horizon

at 6am
the orb
seems twice
the size
as normal

looking
much closer
than its high
in the sky
positions

much
too close

glowing
eerily

menacingly

like some
space ship
about
to land

I turn
the corner
to the
office

lunar light
now occluded
by surrounding
trees

another
invasion
averted

I go
inside

where
the routine
awaits
to attack
