Half-moon Tonight: Are You All Right?

Half-moon Tonight

Half-moon tonight,
"Are you all right?"

Half-moon tonight!
Through blinds closed tight,
it's shining right
in my eyes bright!

Half-moon tonight,
asleep not quite.
All sins washed white,
so what's the bite?

Half-moon tonight --
could mean delight,
but sometimes fright,
or even flight.

Half-moon tonight!
You're out of sight,
so if I might,
"Are you all right?!"

Max Havlick
Summer 2010, in Villa Park, Illinois, written to a charming new friend in my 2010 U.S. Census crew whom I called by mistake on my cell phone late one night after the half-moon kept waking me up by shining in my eyes and making me wonder and worry about her. Uncommonly gracious about it for a married twenty-something with two young children, she texted me back that she was fine. We both survived the incident and still remain friends today.
