the one armed woman

the one armed woman
ran the trails
of the lamp-lit park
with desperation
in her heart
and tears in her eyes

smiles beguile
and day hides night
beneath a warm blanket

sublunary creatures
worshipping the translunary

the walk sign lit up
for a moment in time
and a bike darted across

ancient sanskrit verses:
praise the moon!
