The Moon Cat

The moon is a light-blue cat

that sleeps in the sky,

sometimes in a tight ball, curled up,

sometimes in one or another arc.

He does nothing up there but sleep.

He is a little different every night,

casting the light of his radiant body

down on the earth with the full generosity

of a quiet and unassuming, but outgoing nature.

He is so sleepy he may never wake up,

having had a big meat pie

some millennia ago for supper

and having been wholly, fully, totally satisfied

with it, flavored as it was with dragon's breath,

and sprinkled with the milk of paradise.
