The Sun and the moon

I invited the sun
and the moon
to tea

But they
sat at opposing
ends of the table

Discussing my
crazy mind
how rude!

They say
when I’m most naked
that my weirdness
and madness
cannot be healed

When I openly
laugh, hysterically
at the total absurdity
of this living
that I fail to address

while I should be crying
in the arms, of any other
I sit on the floor
laughing, wild unhealed

The sun and the moon
don’t agree
on anything, I’m
stating my cases

and being judged
by the salmon
they say I’m the worst kind
of bear

But the forest
is all soggy
where my tears
used to bled and rip holes
at my naked seams

where the sun and the moon
still oppose, demanding
further tribute from
the table

They both want to
be the head
and I’m the worst
kind of host

Limping away
outside with the
weirdest notion
that there’s nothing
for me outside
today

because the sun and the moon
are still discussing me
opposing sides at the table

  1. Love this. Especially
    “But the forest
    is all soggy
    where my tears
    used to bleed and rip holes
    at my naked seams”

    I LOVE THIS POEM, you have been on a roll, I have had writer’s block, which I’ll be writing more about lol. But this Poem top 5% of anything I have read by you dude 😉

  3. This is such a great poem. My favourite stanza is this:

    and being judged
    by the salmon
    they say I’m the worst kind
    of bear

    I especially love this because you are thinking like a salmon and that the salmon has expectations of the bear. This really is marvelous.
