homogen eyes

12 May
this evening the lights stayed on later
the moon bubbled out of the powder blue sky
viewed with head back walking home
from buying bacon at the grocers
the pock marks on the bubble
look like a standing homo sapien
with two legs and a torso
but no head
or crane the head and turn the eyes sideways
and see two ears of a rabbit
on the moon-bubble hanging
in thin space
the house smells like bacon now
dark outside the moon still bubbles out
the black overhead
like a giant glowing hot-air balloon still-life
little sparks of airplanes and firebugs
pulsing by the floater insect eyes
