except the moon

    night beach
    the stars and moon
    my eyes

    storm of leaves
    interrupts the news-
    bedtime story by candlelight

    Israel, Nice work. One humble suggestion,
    drop the "a."

    blackout...
    the glow of the candle
    the gleam of her teeth

    sliver of moon
    unable to see the sky --

    my heartbeat
