“Moon Dance”

Posted on

Here is another poem from my first collection, BONES WILL NOT SUFFICE, published in 1997 by Black Lion Press.

MOON DANCE

Hidden from all
but the most haunted,
there’s a place
where dreams go to die.
This muddy graveyard of giants
belongs to the naked dancer.
When rooting for riches only
unearthed by a hairy hand
one must remember:
bloody bones
belong to the hyenas.
Your reward lies deeper,
beyond the scent of memory.
Sniff. Remember the taste
of wet fur and warm milk.
You know the dance.
Raise your muzzle to the moon.
The Owl will tell you when.
The snake will show you where.
