Mars Occultation

For Dosho Port


Like a magician palming

a quarter the moon

hides mars behind its back.

Sun rising as mars reappears

so that even the moon grows

pale and transparent

fades into blue sky.

I stand in the cold air

growing thinner myself.


Magician, assistant, audience

all disappear what

magic is this?
