“Moon Song”

It is theorized by numerous scholars, architects, and imagists, that Moon Song was used only in the fiercest of battles. Studies show that it was most likely quite effective, wiping out entire fields of harpoonian nightmares. It seems, also, to be large. A remnant was discovered in Cope’s Raft, devoid of molecular damage, yet sobbing hard enough to release at least five nautical stars, one for each arm. The best Copeian etymologists recorded and transcribed the remnant’s utterances.

When the sun hung moon, we sang:

click-clank
click-clank


We sang to spoons, and stars fell
scarred feet
fed to dinosaurs in the plains
and district swept full throttle.

click-clank
click-clank


We came to Marshes to grow ponies
horses were created instead.
Instead!
We grew rainbows
fluorescent in nature
haloed and covered in dog fur.
