The Moon You Deserve

 

John Grey

 

 

 

It's a wolf moon,
the flood-howl
and the confluence
of star and echo.
It's the moon
of discontent,
distended dreams
pricked by fear.
It's a blood moon,
a trickle of crimson
on silk white sheets
of the heart.
It's the unshaven
grinning moon,
the sick swell
of demons and ghosts.
It's the moon
that gives sleep to the sleeper,
that steals peace of mind
in return.
