Rob Schackne #350 - Third World Pearl

Third World Pearl

The distant phases of the moon
the patterns of this speech
the pocket bodies

the general rhythms of the rain
the predicates the notables
the costly freeways

none irregular enough
none solid enough
nothing ever enough
not even close

theories of origin and formation
gallop like horses along a silken road
long distance likes us I suppose

safe to say the old moon
was created when a big thing
bounced off this one and made another

the third thing our pretty pearl
which is what hangs up there
that we see most nights
a game of marbles

this third world
not so perfect at that


  1. the ultimate creative writing exercise ---
    write something new about the moon

    yv done it, Rob
