Mortal Stranger

Hello
mortal stranger
I’m aware that
you don’t
remember me.
In a green dress
you were dancing
for a short time
in a field of
lavender
until the sun
came up again,
but you
ephemeral
chose the moon.
She hides away
your secrets
and helps preserve
your molten hair,
the sun reveals
the very person
who you
one lifetime
pretended
to be.
Goodbye
mortal stranger
I’m aware that
you never
cared for me.
In a green dress
you burn like desire
for a long while
in a field of
henna trees
and ginkgo leaves
until the sun
may rise again,
alas
eternal
is nightmare’s moon.
