the dark side of the moon

176 2 1

landscaped bleached

with the moons bright light

articles of clothing

turned white in the night

"stay out of the shadows"

a man tells his son

"in the dark of the  night the moon

he protects all but one"

"and if it's a woman?"

replies the son

a rueful smile 

shown in the man's eyes

"then let the moon save no one"
