That menacing, full-faced moon was staring into my window.
I turned away ignoring its inquiry.
“What are you doing?”
“What’s your security?”
the Moon said, wondering aloud
“Don’t ask me now.” I said, “I’m asleep”
The Moon laughed and called me a fool
“Wait a minute, you’re the moon What do you care?”
After a pause, the Moon said, “I hope you know you are carrying on. The questions are from you not me.
Like you said I am the Moon I don’t care.
I just float around following the earth and you interrupted me.
I have a decent job, security and more or less a peaceful nature.
You are the one who is menacing me.
I wasn’t staring into your window. What am I a peeping moon?
Go back to sleep and let me finish my job.
You have to deal with the future.”
I awoke abruptly at 4AM
