Full Moon

The moon is full
of mischievous acts tonight
open heart surgery
upon our chests
seeking its own vision
with enchanted lovers
calling the owls
that sing into all hearts
She never had to floss
like the rest of us
or decide
what kind of clothes to wear
once I saw Her
dip underneath the clouds
kissing all the hungry ones
on the forehead
