Full Moon and You’re Not Here by Sandra Cisneros (from Loose Woman)

Filed under: Uncategorized — exclusivelyexclusive2 @ 12:34 am
Usless moon,
Too beautiful to waste.
But you, my Cinderella,
have the midnight curfew,
a son waiting to be picked up from his den meeting,
and the fractured marriage weighing on your head
like a crown of thorns.

Oh my beauty,

it’s not polite

to keep me waiting.
To send me reeling in a spiral
and then to say good night.

I smoke a cigar,

play a tango,
gulp my gin and tonic.

Goddamn you.

Full moon and you’re not here.

I take off the silk slip,
the silver bangels.

You’re in love with my mind.

But, sometimes, sweetheart,

a woman needs a man
who loves her ass.

  2. The poem is pretty clear, D’Andre. It explains exactly what I’m talkin about. LOL.
