Bisexual Man in the Moon
Bisexual man in the moon,
winking like a shy girl in puberty,
not covered in cloud clothes.
Often your manly face appears
with a Halloween smile,
vulpine eyes with jagged lines glowing,
bounced by earthly astronauts.
A female you must surely be,
rolling up your petticoats, pulling the tides
gently to and from shores,
waxing and waning as if,
as if exhaling your breath in feverish love,
So proud you are,
Bisexual Man and Woman in the Moon,
up there among the stars,
king and queen of the night.
