2% Waning Crescent

A Universal funny but not.
How cold this Earth feels
when a loved one leaves.
It's like all the energy
gets sucked up to heaven -
And they're dancing on TV
and we have a vet appointment tomorrow
and Purple Heart is on the phone.
And all around me
life swirls on.
As I sit
in this vortex
of stillness

and coldness
and darkness.

And tomorrow
that last silvery sliver
will be gone.
The sky too
will be still
and cold
and dark
And a new moon will be born.
