AFTER MISTAKING THE MOTEL 6 SIGN FOR THE MOON BEHIND THE MAPLE TREES
Standing in the copper night
after a rainstorm,
ashamed I couldn’t tell the difference
in how the florescence paints
the autumn leaves, the real moon
tucked somewhere behind a sign
that assures me there’s no vacancy
anywhere at this hour.
