"Moonology" by Albert Goldbarth


We think we see the "face" of the moon,
there isn't any culture's folklore
that says otherwise; but what if it faces
the other direction, mouthing something
dark to our understanding, against
its dark place on the night? The voice
in the belly. The sting in the conscience.

Read the entire poem at The Georgia Review.
