The Moon Will Do You No Harm
 
The full moon
Hovers way above
An abandoned hotel.
Curtains limp in glassless windows.
Don’t look down
Because underneath the moon,
There is a reminder
Of a perfect ghost
That will never turn into flesh.
The moon will do you no harm.
If you keep your eyes trained on it
For a little while
It warms you up better than the sun.
A short conversation with a stranger,
The e-mail from a friend,
The faraway voice of some New Yorker on the phone.
You hold on to all you know
In this life.
And bear the brunt
Of disappointment tactfully,
Braving a cold wind
In your heart
As you try to sleep.
The moon will do you no harm,
If you don’t look down
And quietly vow
To capture that elusive ghost
In some alternate universe.
