There are truths we do not want to see, lies we love.

By the Light of the Lying Moon

I keep myself busy in labyrinths excavating reasons why you aren't here,

tapping on hollow bones for answers they don’t have

to questions void-of-course.

I know the soil is spent and yet I dig for what was never there.

Each fistful of dirt flies in the face of the lying moon;

silvered charm exchanged for umbral truth.

Ashes of light grip bitter in my mouth as soil marries tears.

I won’t look up won’t acknowledge the dead rock locked

in darkness and truth but wait for the light of the lying moon,

for you.
