Mars descending out of season

Mars descending out of season

The moon tonight
absolutely impossible
like a science fiction special effect
slinking along the horizon

terrifying, enormous, glaring
like a one-eyed Mars
descending to hunt
on the earth himself

his single blood-gold eye
glimpsed in flashes as he runs
through the trees pacing me
too many trees in the way

I want to find a hill
cold be damned and stare
back at him drink in my fill
not blinking until he does
