Fool Moon

Skies in dark dress

Paint on my canvas my locked distress

Grown by your absence and the loneliness I feel.

And the Moon like a white rose in the sky, rose again

and then I see your face mirrored on the moon’s disc,

smiling shyly, but, suddenly drops of rain

blurred the view of you tears

for the dying hope of seeing you again….

One response to “Fool Moon”

  1. The Moon (music & read by John Cale.”Kerouac-Kicks Joy Darkness” LP, 1997)

    The moon her magic be, big sad face
    Of infinity. An illuminated clay ball
    Manifesting many gentlemanly remarks

    She kicks a star, clouds foregather
    In Scimitar shape, to round her
    Cradle out, upsidedown and old time

    You can also let the moon fool you
    With imaginary orange-balls
    Of blazing imaginary light in fright

    As eyeballs, hurt & foregathered,
    Wink to the wince of the seeing
    Of a little sprightly otay

    Which projects spikes of light
    Out the round smooth blue balloon
    But full of mountains and moons

    Deep as the ocean, high as the moon,
    Low as the lowest river lagoon
    Fish in the Tar and pull in the Spar

    Billy the Bud and Hanshan Emperor
    And all wall moongazers since
    Daniel Machree, Yeats see

    Gaze at the moon ocean marking
    the face –

    In some cases
    The moon is you

    In any case
    The moon.

    (Jack Kerouac, 1958)
