“The next full moon will be on July 16.” By Sasha at her desk

5 minutes

you are a moon daughter
moon sister birth and born and
heaven is here even in
the green earth
bursting red
clay is cracking
hand pies made of ancestor
bones and we get along
with the yellow of
daisy paint on our cheeks
and church in the morning
lighting the candles at sundown
trouble is the lightning
strike cross the picket line
of the dirty rhymes and the
forgetfulness of February

be strong i say to the
nightmare frozen in my throat
tattooing brave on my tongue
before i speak
