The Yellow, Yellow Airplane
by Hank LeGrand
The first of 2 poems about the earth-moon relationship
Glorified Luna in all her grandeur
Is gaoled by gyves! Gravity's godsend!
Gyrating she goes, in full circle;
So journey's start was journey's end.
To parent planet, with placebo love
Was Luna's face, perpetually pinned -
Estranged, enslaved, embittered! by Earth
She was sure that Earth hath sinned.
Her far-side face peered at stars
Luna larked; libation of light!
She dreamt of lonely glowing dust
In darkness of eternal night.
Boom! blew the supernovae:
whooOOOOSH wailed the nebulae!
This cosmic symphony of swirling colours
Where Luna was to find true solace.
'Unleash uncertainty unto us!
I simply can't control this lust!'
Yet none could hear her woeful cries:
For this was space as She realised.
Bound by hollow geometric perfection,
This inexorable circular motion -
Gravity's torment, Luna's lament
For journey's start is journey's end.
