Uncommon Friend

some say you
don’t belong
don’t fit in
a nonconformist –

and so they
give you a chance

but you are bright and
adding zing to my
dull life

zest to my ordinary days
balance to my humble story

and I am better for
knowing you

They Say


they say the moon is just some rock
a collection of debris leftover
from a gigantic space collision
an orbiting satellite on a fixed rotation
but my moon is soft and gentle
a glowing nightlight
a midnight friend who
sings love songs to my muse
