phases of the moon

he blunders along his way
steps on his own feet
then falls in love again
he shambles between accidents
words juxtaposed into life
like sparks leaping from flint
he scrabbles for leniency
from hope to unqualified despair
finally settling on distaste
he laughs religiously  if not
self-righteously at the vehemence
encountered while alone
he exists within these transitions
the moon’s shadow waxes and wanes
