Why is Sol weeping

his hurricane tears—And

at August’s end when

his burning circles pace—

Sol’s adoration would cinder

Were he not chasing her around


Our Earth


Were she not fleeing him around

Luna’s yearning could dissolve

her firefly pond pregnant—

at February’s end when

her month keens—But

Why is Luna weeping
