A Quartet of Moon Mythologies

New Moon
Monandaeg: "Moon's Day."
Sacred to the moon goddess,
Loathed by working stiffs.


Quarter Moon
Crescent-horned and fierce,
Ishtar's bull gores Gilgamesh,
Then loses its head.


Half Moon
There doesn't exist
A cracker large enough for
A whole green cheese moon.


Full Moon
The lycanthrope stirs,
Wakes from uneasy dreams. Sighs.
Outside. Nude. Again.

Love it. You're giving the Andrew-meister a run for his money!
