Writing lesson

“There’s a full moon in the sky tonight”
— Well, where else would it be?
Did you ever see a full moon
in a glass of lemon tea?

Did you ever see a full moon
playing ninepins in New York,
or catching silver salmon
in the sea off County Cork?

Did you ever see a full moon
dressed in something kinky,
selling tiny tubes of curious lube
in the backstreets of Helsinki?

No, I didn’t think you did,
my dear, poetic love.
And please don’t get me started
about “the moon above”.
