Saturday water

1.7.12

The moon’s influence on the tides is widely understood. Our bodies, water,

ebb and flow throughout the month.  Women speak of their “moon”

when referencing menstruation.  The dark of the moon is considered the ideal

time to go inward, allowing the body’s waters to flow unimpeded.

Tonight, the dishes in the sink, water running over cloth, soap uncovering

bright shining plates, the moon hangs behind cloud cover

waxing brilliant, pulling the gaze.  It is impossible to look away.
