Forget the Moon
Martin Cockroft (bio)

on the floors
            of warm houses, the hours

that sweep
            against our windows
            like rainwater.

             this too will pass, sun-
             tart morning

come. For now
            cicadas thrum, dark

planets, indifferent
            to your shoulder’s white.
