Raining Moon by Jessica McWhirt

And the water that
fell from the skies,
drowned the moon,
cutting it in half,
shooting it to Earth,
and no one panicked,
and no one cared-
The slice of the moon
lacerated the blues
and browns sending
one half forward,
the other half back,
and no one seemed to mind,
and no one was alarmed-
You were on one side
and I was on the other,
while you moved forward,
and I jumped back.
Eventually one of us
will be engulfed by
a black hole
and spat out on the
other end of time
and we’ll never know
what we missed,
but the people don’t care and
they don’t seem to mind.

Jessica McWhirt laughs in her sleep and talks too much when awake. She's been published in The Battered Suitcase as well as Breadcrumb Scabs.

and I like the repetition of 'no one seemed to care/no one seemed to mind'

I have no idea why, but this reminds me of the yin-yang. Very nice.
