The challenge today was to stop fighting the moon. Lean in. Accept the moon. The moon just wants what’s best for me and my poems. So yes – write a poem that is about, or that involves, the moon.

Chat the Moon

Chat the moon with me
and I shall fly to mars

Perhaps the stars
will join us there in our

swirling revelry. Hard to say
with all of the black holes

lurking about—those dirty
bastards bellowing bile

and acting like the universe
revolves around their smile.

Ridiculous! Preposterous!
Presumptuous at best,

pernicious at worst,
but now I digress. So

chat me to the moon
with a glint in your eye;

catch a wave of light with me
until gravity draws us

nigh to earth again.

—a draft poem by Carla Jeanne Picklo Jordan
