9th Moon

Written by: Glenn McCrary

Safety wasn’t a brand of quarreling
For it was known that I was of infinite value
Sudden circumstances in the moment
Establishing rare hopes that weren’t previously held
How it was such an inviting risk
Disappointment was the making of fiction
I knew not of catastrophic probabilities
When cherished by such a caring creature
Around my neck lies an emblem of my sincerity
To hold for multiple eternities
