To Write: the Moon

写: 月

One must draw the curve to welcome the crescent,

then hand down the sun the invite to retire west.

One stroke to wave you good night,

one more to close the door that holds you.

A version of this poem appeared on Hayden’s Ferry Review #57: The Borderlands Issue (2015). It is an international literary journal based in Arizona. More information here.
