why haven't you thought about bruising the moon?

Because I got tired of the moon 
even before high school.
 The madness of the werewolves 
was that of virgins, while it still is. 
Because the moon is too close, 
it is almost tangible, to love and 
regularly gets puckered.
Besides bruises are too 
plain and tender. 

Only rocks or minor falls
 bruise, and I am neither.

This is lovely. Love the juxtaposition of "plain" and "tender". Bruises are so ordinary, just in their sheer number and endless repetition but I love how you followed with tender,reminding us of the only role a bruise plays. I have been lurking around your blog for a while now(found you through pratul)and I have to say I am a huge fan.
