Long-Distance

Long-Distance

written by: Dona McCormack

 

Olentangy river flows
full of cold
March moonlight
I think of us—
Coins
in all the silver
stones
at rock bottom
Gleams in the sheen of
that great orb’s face
How simple for us
to slip
off the beams
and vanish

We seem though to
land in light’s intensity
lacey moon glow
dripping jars
of the Olentangy
moonstruck and magical—
blue ice kisses
to lick off
our lips
whenever we’re
tempted to
slip—
vanish
