I AM A NATURAL WONDER

and you say,     Who are you?
and I say,

I don’t.
and we by the ocean    will not swim.
and we be the ocean    rising with the moon,

a natural wonder, we, the moon.

and you say,     Who are you?
and I say, Disappearing, I say,            it doesn’t matter,

a natural wonder, it doesn’t matter, I say,
Rising              with the moon,
and the worst part is                            you’re watching
a retreat, a waning,                              you see

me, natural wonder.
