                               moonsnake climb


             There are certain things
              that are only active
              in a bright silver moon ,the kind that comes
              between three , and four. Mistletoe
              and lemurs, for one -(and another)- and there are many others,
              who wake ,and listen , and grow in this
               luminescence - look about
                with large quiet eyes, crick crack leaves open,
                move in a subtle way
                around the trunk of a tree - even thus
                the moonsnake climbs, only to wait
                  through dark or heat, sometimes weeks
                before another hour like this.
