Today's poem is by Joshua Marie Wilkinson

[we stand in]

we stand in
for the moon

a slide rule
to the yard under

logging noise
takes practice how
to carefully open

this door
with your eyes down
& your colors intact

we put our clothes
back on

slowly before

our laughter turns us
into somebody else's
