Lunar Distance

Standing on the second floor of the back porch of my apartment

My hands resting on the wooden railing

I am staring at the moon

It’s about 11:15pm or so and I’m thinking of you

I do this just about every night around this time

Stare at the moon

It’s the wee hours of the morning in London

I tucked you in a few hours ago

And I’m about to put head to pillow soon

For now, I stare at the moon

Reaching up as if to touch it

I stretch my arm as far as I can

“You’re only an arm’s length away,” I tell myself

I make a XOXO across the clear night sky

I stare at the moon for a few minutes more

Hoping to catch your reflection on a not too distant star
