New Year Blue Moon

New Year Blue Moon

Blue moon isn’t blue.
It’s the pink that white becomes
when mixed with city light and smog.
It starts as a smudge behind bare trees.
Add a dash of nostalgia,
a pinch of anticipation.
Then chill. Serve
faithfully, even when the moon is new, invisible,
and the year is old, less promising.
