Since the moon humbled herself

Since the moon humbled herself to rule by night
The universe decreed that when she comes forth,
stars shall come forth with her,
and when she goes in, they shall go in with her.

Tonight stars have taken a break.
They have been replaced by sound.
I hear breath and cars below.
I go no where. I turn inside my hollow.

Moon and her consorts are mist.
Striated bands of Jupiter are blue.
Other planets are at ease
for they have their own round moons.

Once again I have nothing,
nothing but the back light.
