How to Photograph the Moon
by Sharon Auberle

first, of course, you must be naked
even on a cold night       yes
you may wear a long coat
but naked is the only way

then you must laugh
and pray       maybe all at once
singing is good too        and drumming
to the beat of your heart

all this must happen before
you get out the camera…
next        whisper to Her
say you understand

her longing       her loneliness
her wistful gaze at Jupiter
high above       who seems
in ignorance of her charm

she will reward you
with her brightest light
knowing you understand
this fragile territory of love
