Full Moon

Pandemic Moon

by Yash Seyedbagheri

at least, I have stars, flickering silver eyes

and the moon sailing through silver-gray clouds

while statistics blare through electronic screens

one storm, two storms, three storms beckon

variations and mutations leap

but the moon shines, round and firm

while numbers contract and shrink and contract again

she casts luminous blankets

over patches of snow

still and sinking into soft slumber
