Moon Speak

People on Earth
watch me grow
and react
as
sliver
by
sliver
I add to my act.
I bleach the stars
when I am full
and give the tides
an extra pull.
A golden marble
hung in the sky,
I lamplight Earth
while I slide by.
Then sliver by sliver
I subtract,
becoming again
an invisible fact.
I seem to take a day
to rest
then
sliver
by
sliver
I slip
into
full
dress.
