on the lunar

(for grandpa)

on the lunar
calendar, we
are celebrating
our birthdays
today, just one
world away
from each
other,
which feels
like multitudes,
on and off
the system
for counting
so many days
apart

the moon that came for

the moon that came for
my grandpa was the one that
came out tonight – a

bloodless grin so familiar,
even the cheshire cat paused

there is magic in

there is magic in
a leap year, whether
we receive an extra
day or month. there
is latitude and
longitude to stretch
out these lengthy,
ancillary memories.
there is allowance
to indulge
, to
slip away to that
corner of our
brain that is not
averse to trying
something new,
just for today,
just this year
.

there are a handful

there are a handful
of things
about keeping
time that leaves
uncertainty –
springing forward,
falling back,
marking the
certainty
of your death
on two calendars.
if tonight’s moon
looks like the same
moon that took
you, give
us a sign that
time will move on
