This Thin Shred of Moon

Was hoping to post a death poem I’ve been working on, but so far it’s refusing my attempts to lay it out…might have to wait for its rigor mortis to pass. Instead, another piece of moon to chew on.

This Thin Shred of Moon

This thin shred of moon
caught between stars
gets lodged in my head too
till I probe and worry at it
like a bitten-off nail
stuck in my teeth

About John MacKenzie

I'll mumble for ya. Poetry, plus most things quantifiable: science, neuroscience, memory, epistemology, baseball. And so on.
