Moon, why are you so quiet?

dallas

Because the world is so loud
And you cannot hear me.

Because the world is so frightening
And I am speechless.

Because the world is so beautiful
I am afraid that if I make a sound

I will ruin a moment that will never be remade
At any point in time on any floating rock.

Sometimes I sing to you in dreams,
Do you hear me, then?

Do you think of me when the song you heard
In sleep finds you during the day,

When the movies I played for your closed eyes
Find you in the harsh light of the sun—

When I show pictures of moments soon to pass
Are you surprised at my quiet?

Being so powerful is exhausting.
I have no words left after moving tides

And talking to gods.

Say something!
