The moon men abound

Shining in borrowed light

Reflected glories adorning

their flawed existence

.

Paeans serenade their spots,

and their soft light

lighting up the darkest night

Snugly entrench their conceit

.

Waxing and waning

Intoxicated by adoration

They forget they are

but a reflection…a shadow

.

For its hard work being a sun

You must burn yourself

layer by layer…

to extinction
