fullest moon

fullest moon

i am become thee,
planet of madness
ruler of water
and all men
and animals
alike
i am become thee,
shining forth out of every atom
as i learned light years ago
when i was but a star
i am with you
as i am you
as you, somehow,
reminded me
of the truth
of my heart

 

“every time a dog dies, a kitten gets born”

 

but i am become death
and dog and kitten
and was born

 

a million times before
i learned how to kiss you goodnight
