On the Pleasures of Orr (Part 1)


HAS THE MOON BEEN UP THERE
by Gregory Orr

Has the moon been up there
All these nights
And I never noticed?

A whole week with my nose
To the ground, to the grind.

And the beloved faithfully
Returning each evening
As the moon.

Where have I been?
Who has abandoned whom?
