Moonstruck (a poem)

“La bella luna! The moon brings the woman to the man. Capice?” Moonstruck (1987)

incandescent by the light of that great orb
the path she walks alone, unclothed, defenseless
some choose harsh rays, heat of day
she radiates by way of night whispers, lit upon pale skin

moonlight summons
a call she will heed
as the moon she is made
present, luminous, open, struck
