cancer moon

you would have asked me

to brush my hair back

so it wasn’t hiding my eyes

so you could get a look

at what’s really going on

now you want the strands pushed back

so you can see from the inside

from where it’s really going on

using my eyes

to keep watch of your children

and your children’s children

and i will

you will

how many breaths does it take

to get to the center

how come you’re more real

without proof

my cancer moon

is in its own house

made whole

para mi madre

que siempre

está la luna
