Transitory Relationships

How nice it is when

the moon shifts into a puddle,

when, instead of offering you

the sky-high reflective judgment

of a friend, you can stomp on it

as though it were loathsome, like a bug,

or something no longer of use to you,

like a cigarette butt or a wad

of chewed gum, or a lover’s heart.

Like all other objects with which

we have transitory relationships.
