    The Moon's & Me.

    I did not believe a relationship existed
    between the moons and me,
    but I interviewed some planets about
    their companions just to see

    Mercury,
    Are you too busy
    Working to have time
    For someone else?

    Venus,
    Are you too hot
    To have a moon
    Wrapped around you?

    Earth,
    Are you content
    Having one friend
    In your orbit?

    Mars,
    Are you proud of
    Phobos and Deimos
    reigning havoc?

    Jupiter,
    Are you blinded
    By the paparazzi
    Of seventy nine moons?

    Saturn,
    Are you overwhelmed
    By the number engaged
    By your rings?

    Uranus,
    Are you numb
    From the icy moons
    Whispering to you?

    Neptune,
    Are you cleansed
    By the water deities
    Can you even see dust?

    Now I know the moons make
    the planets’ identities whole,
    their personas aligning with mine
    Together, we maintain the universe’s role.
