Random Poem:

Sun chased the Moon
Kassidy

Your loss
 1
is my regret,
 2
and my perpetual relief;
 3
 
 
for we don’t hold service
 4
when the deceased did not exist
 5
with a name or address
 6
 
 
but anonymous,
 7
took up residence in our collective self
 8
and though we pet-named, nick-named,
 9
no arrangement of sound
 10
did justice to its ephemeral beauty.
 11
 
 
Your loss
 12
is my loss,
 13
and my indisputable gain;
 14
 
 
for my part it lived, manifested in emission
 15
while you managed a feeble reflection.
 16
 
 
For a time, you gave chase:
 17
a night followed every day;
 18
in time, day followed night
 19
as Sun chased the Moon.
 20
 
 
Moon, you’ve made sad the Sun;
 21
she’s drifting away,
 22
to find that nameless star again.
 23
