Marionette (Shadorma)

I am yours
hung from your fingers
a puppet
on veined strings
always manipulated
this marionette

Red-Faced (Shadorma)

Beautiful
This red moon rising
Exact in
It’s placement
Balancing precarious
Atop the suburbs

*Last night me and my mum in-law spent some minutes gazing at a stunning, red, full moon. Until my father-in-law stuck his head out of the door and told us it was a satellite dish reflecting the streetlights. Hey-Ho, still looked nice. 😁
