Today's poem is by Jason Tandon


The moon like a sickle's blade
clatters across the lake.

On the far shore the music resumes.
Glasses clink and splash

spilling starlight along their stems.
Seated among white linens

my love catches drops on her tongue,
blinds me with the quick eclipse

of two yellow crescents
in the umber of her eyes.
