What Would the Moon Want with Me?
and a dreamer who likes to be
near trees and water, somewhere
the stars too are visible at night
away from the glare of the city,
away from the ceaseless noise
and the difficulty of breathing. That's why
the moon always gazes so long in your window.
... And it all came to pass as foretold.
Thereby I know the moon loves me.
