We Tear

We Tear

We tear
Inconveniently as bread.

After our walk
we wanted no one else

to enjoy the moon like that
so we buried it.

Li Po found it floating face down
in the river and revived it.

It’s like when you think you see
a corpse in the water

but it’s back-floating
looking up at its real self.
