The Moon Knows

The moon knows

written by: Ipsita Banerjee



the moon hides not
the ravenous drooling
of the dark

the moon shies not
from the claws at her face
that found their mark

the moon only waits
waxing and waning
naked and stark
watching lest our souls
are consumed
by night’s hard casque

for the moon knows
only the moon knows
that the sun wears a mask.
