a thousand miles would not suffice
tonight will not return for a hundred years and more
and the moon is so very far away
these brilliant heavenly clouds will have dissipated
by PA
you would say in 21 wise toast murmur
would you stay
we could stay and hope to stay long enough
to see another Christmas moon
this one will not object now
to a bit of wistful daze frown and gaze alone
this is all but -- is this all but --
all this is is 1,000,000 big questions and little dilemmas
foisted on a moon of rare occurrence.
