down from the moon

I throw bell sounds at
a stranger standing in the
dark shadow of the satellite

I say, “I have this feeling
I just have something
I need to let out.”
I say, “it’s among many feelings.”

this stranger sends me a picture
of a naked woman
on an elephant.

I say, “I don’t really want to
live out today feeling
like this.”
