The Moon is Ambiguity

You are always seen as female,
Moon, referred to as She.

And yet, there is a man in the Moon,
The Moon’s lover?

Or is the male within her,
the ambiguity, the edge.

The edge that makes
the Moon a Spaceman’s walk, a stepping stone
on the long journey to distant planets.

We love our Earth, but our gaze has ever
been on Moon and Stars.

The Moon is Circe, luring us with siren song.
It is a hidden secret.

The Moon is our companion,
The Moon is a pair of itchy after-burners,
eager to be off.
