If The Moon Happened Once

By Kay Ryan

If the moon happened once,
it wouldn't matter much,
would it?

Once evening's ticket
punched with a
round or a crescent.

You could like it
or not like it,
as you chose.

It couldn't alter
every time it rose;

it couldn't do those
things with scarves
it does.
