Wolf Moon fog

My personal travail is strong today,
brain’s foggy as this morning
as I tried to gain footing
in the funky, mental mud—

I write a new myth:
sunshine bleeds into everything
through the park trees.
Fog is finally eaten up by the sky.

But I stay in,
waiting for the full Wolf Moon
to make an appearance
before I howl out
my blue mood,
obliterating it—

Still spooked by
another heartsick wind,
I turned my goddess ID in
& listened to comedians gawk
as I slowly got bombed
on G&Ts like a drunk hawk

Will your love save me tonight?
Or do you have to work late,
as I wait to gain shape
and feelings once again?
