A Man Who Loves the Moon

A man who loves the moon
owns a heart
yearning to be elsewhere.
He smells like silver,
tarnished
a ghost orchid in rain.
His dreams scatter and twitter
like milkweed fluff.
He knows the moon is a D
para Dios if waxing
and a C para Christos if waning.
He cannot recall
how it is you met,
but always remembers
how it is you stick
together.
