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.
