Watering the Moon
by Alison Daniel

Slim hips hide the crescent moon

three nights before walking the path

to vertebrae, shoulder blades, the small

of his back ripples water.

Sea foam, white stone, marble

torso moans from eyes staring

at the torch while they wait

for hands soaked by scent

when she rides him like a bull

until the fall on the lion's

luminous pelt like animals

in the morning.
