Illustration by Benjamin Voros

a blue moon bears the name

………..of the moon,

…………………………….the earth,

………………….a raucous thank you

………..and amen. you cry for

………………….you,

……………………………and your family

………………………………………and your friends.

………..a wonderful day

………………….to run your mail,

………..to make a reply,

………………….and to remember a personal

………………………………………………..dividend.
