i popped my head indoors and called up to my wife 
you must see the moon
it's moved

the moon always moves 
but here it was setting like the sun
diving to the street
due west 
at midnight

could it be a sign
or maybe the moon is now prone to scurrying
like a crab after clams 

down she comes
my wife
who is not in fact the moon and stars herself
but closer than i
and not half as full of doubt 

out she comes
yes she certifies
it's odd

two witnesses
