The moon hung above me
 Crescent shaped
Almost three dimensional
It was accompanied by a smattering of stars
And the whole gang of them
Seemed to pop up all around
Above me
As I ran
Serenaded by crickets and
Frogs and
The occasional car door slamming
Or dog barking
Which I blocked out
Along with the rows of houses
Their features mostly obscured in the gathering darkness
I had eyes only for that moon
Sitting up there
Like a plush toy perched on a shelf
Like the cover of a nature video
Like something from a science fiction movie
Daring me to
Want anything more
