Even the moon stayed


Even the moon stayed
Longer than you who arrived
After midnight—left
Before dawn—was I only
Dreaming about you?—The moon?

(For Cutty)

      • I’ve been searching my memory, and I’m pretty sure now that I didn’t find The Ink Dark Moon on my own. I believe Mike Leon gave my first copy to me.

      • John, just speaking with Mike and, not only did he indeed give you this book, but I was with him when he bought his first copy in New York in 2000. All this is news to me. Ha!
