Lunar Ephemeris

Like a yellow eye,
a full moon is now here,
soaring across the violet sky.

As it moves,
it removes itself
from the city

sight: hiding behind
the thin sheets of gray clouds.
It might be blinking, sleeping, dying.

The city did not care.
Instead, searchlights
look up for planes

losing their sights.
The moon took them away.
It is nowhere to be found.
