Moon Meeting

I have late night
Conversations with the moon.
She asks me about

The sun and I

Ask her about the pockmarks
Dotting her skin.
I tell her that
I know how it feels

To have someone
Else’s footprints etched
Into your surface.
We understand

The stagnancy of being

Beautiful but scarred.
