98% Waxing Gibbous


lessons from the moon:

do not drink three days before
or three days after
a full moon

do not stand outside of the clubhouse
and peek in with spite
if you don’t want to join anyhow

do not pull an Ignatius Reilly
and hold yourself aloof
from those around you

do not give in to the vices
that in your stronger days
you resisted with a noble spirit

do not think too hard about yourself
when you know you’ll never figure it out
on nights like this

just ride the current across
sweeping deadly emotions
and know that when you arise
the next day
things have the possibility
of being better
